How potent is stomach acid?

How potent is stomach acid? If it’s really acidic, why doesn’t it burn through your stomach and intestines? And why doesn’t it burn, say, the floor, if you throw up? What CAN stomach acid burn through? Can it be compared with any other acid? How is it produced?

Anna, 15-24

  1. stomach acid doesnt burn a hole through you because your stomach and intestines are lined with mucous preventing the acid to eat through you. it does acctualy burn the floor when you throwup when you havent eaten anything…….. thats because when you eat the acid is absorbed into the food and is no longer acidic, but when you dont eat there is nothing to stop it from eating the floor, also the acidity is why it burns your throat when you puke. im almost positive it is called Hydrochloric Acid. sorry if there are spelling/grammer errors. im only 13. ^^ have a nice day. =)
