Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Experiment 2 (25-9-08) A Redox Titration - Determining the percentage of iron in an iron ore Objective To determine the percentage of iron in a spathic iron ore using manganate (VII) solution. Theory Aqueous solution of the iron ore (Solution 'B') can be prepared by dissolving it into dilute sulphuric acid. FeCO3 (s) + H2SO4(aq) � Fe2+(aq) + SO42-(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2 (g) Molar concentration of manganate(VII) solution can be determined by titrated it with a standard solution of iron(II) sulphate. 5Fe2+(aq) + MnO4-(aq) + 8H+(aq) � 5Fe3+(aq) + Mn2+(aq) + 4H2O(l) Molar concentration of iron(II) ion in Solution 'B' can be determined by titrated it with standardized diluted manganate(VII) solution. 5Fe2+(aq) + MnO4-(aq) + 8H+(aq) � 5Fe3+(aq) + Mn2+(aq) + 4H2O(l) Procedures 1. Preparation of solution of a spathic iron ore ( done by teacher) a. Dissolve 8.501g of a spathic iron ore in diluted sulphuric acid. b. Boil the resulting solution to remove carbon dioxide. c. Cool the solution. d. Dilute the solution into 1.0 dm3. e. Label it as 'B'. 2. Preparation of a standard solution of iron(II) sulphate a. Record the mass of iron(II) sulphate crystal given by the teacher. b. ...read more.

e. Add 25.0 cm3 of 1 M sulphuric acid into the flask. f. Run the solution from the burette into the conical flask, swirling the flask all the time. g. Stop the titration when the colour of solution in the conical flask just changes from colourless to pink. h. Record the final burette reading. i. Repeat steps(c)-(h) three more times. Results and Calculations 1a. Mass of iron(II) sulphate crystals = 5.000g 1b. No. of moles of iron(II) sulphate = = 0.01800 mol Molar concentration of iron(II) sulphate in 'Standard' = = 0.07199 M 2a.

Conclusion

4a. Apparatus used: a beaker, glass rod, 250.0 cm3 of volumetric flask and filter funnel. Steps: 1. Dissolve the crystal with about 100 cm3 of 1 M sulphuric acid in a beaker. 2. Stir the solution with a glass rod until all the crystal is dissolved. 3. Pour the solution into a 250.0 cm3 of volumetric flask through a filter funnel. 4. Rinse the beaker and glass rod with about 30 cm3 of 1 M sulphuric acid. 5. Pour the washing though the funnel into the volumetric flask. 6. Add 1 M sulphuric acid upto the graduated mark of the volumetric flask. 7. Stopper the flask and invert it several times in order to mix the contents well. 8. Label the flask as 'Standard'. 4b. Apparatus used: a pipette, pipette filler and 250.0 cm3 of volumetric flask. Steps: 1. Wash a 25.0 cm3 pipette with distilled water and then with manganate(VII) solution. 2. Pipette 25.0 cm3 of manganate(VII) solution into a 250.0 cm3 of volumetric flask. 3. Repeat step(b) again. 4. Add deionized water upto the graduated mark of the volumetric flask. 5. Stopper the flask and invert it several times in order to mix the contents well. 6. Label the flask as 'Titrant'. Practical Report (Experiment 2) F.6A Angel Chan (4) Page 1 of 5 ...read more.

    The smaller the volume titrated, the larger the error. In the practical the error is: %error=0.1cm3/14.267cm3 � 100 =0.70% * Volumetric flask: Again the error depends on the size of flask used. Since a 250cm3 flask was used to be read to 0.1 cm3, the error is: %error=0.1cm3/250cm3 � 100

    Fourthly, a significant part of any titration is the indicator that is used to measure the end point, if it is not suitable then this can also cause discrepancies. The pH of the Magnesium hydroxide mixture and HCl reaction could have been measured using a pH meter, the resulting pH

    materials, are generally known by their trivial names as in the above table. A few indicators, of which thymol blue is an example, are polyprotic acids which can change color more than once as pH is continuously increased. Such indicators can be used at a pH equal to either of their pKa values.

    For example, some antacids require to be taken before meal as food digestion may affect the absorption of the drugs and lower the effectiveness. On the other hand, some antacids should be served one hour after meal in order to prolong the drug's effectiveness.

    I was able to clearly prove the correct order of reaction for each of these chemicals by using my graphs of concentration against reaction rate. To work out the overall order of the reaction all of the individual orders of reaction must be added together.

    But, there is a colour change of manganate(VII) to Mn+2, which is from dark purple to light pink. At the end of the experiment, the colour of the potassium manganate disappears as it reacts with the iron(II) ions. This is because all the Fe2+ ions are fully reacted, whereas the extra drop of potassium manganate solution will make the titration mixture turn pink.
