4. Jack prepared two glasses half full of room temperature water. He added a whole Alka-Seltzer® antacid tablet to glass #1 and a crushed Alka-Seltzer® antacid tablet to glass #2.

What conclusion can Jack make based on this experiment by selecting an answer?
a. Antacid tablets dissolve faster in water at room temperature than in water at higher temperatures.
b. Decreasing the surface area of antacid makes it more soluble in room temperature water.
c. Increasing the surface area of antacid increases the rate at which it dissolves in water.
d. Stirring affects the rate at which antacid dissolves in water more than its surface area.
