un-ionized aspirn molecules can readily penetrate the stomach lining into a region of less adicity. This is where the stomach irritation associated with aspirn occurs. Use Le Chatelier's principle to explain why irritation occurs in this area.

Could someone explain the relevance this question has to Le Chatelier's principle? I'm not understanding the relationship between the two.

    IT is a bit of a stretch to use Le Chatelier's principle, but...

    If the area of the somach lining is less acid, then more of the aspirin will ionize to try to restablish the acid pH.

    Thanks :D
