Extracts from this document...

Introduction

IB Chem 11 Laura Hu Partner: Rhona Yue Worked together with Zheting and Melissa Additivity of Heats of Reaction: Hess's Law Purpose: To confirm Additivity of Heats of Reaction: Hess's Law. Supplies: As in text. Procedure: As in text. Reactions: Reaction #1: NaOH(s) + H2O(l) Na+ + OH- + q1 q1 is the difference in Heat for reaction 1 in Joules NaOH(s) is about 2.0g, and H2O(l) is 100mL Reaction #2: 100mL of 0.50M HCl(l) + about 2.0g NaOH(s) NaCl + H2O + q2 q2 is the difference in Heat for reaction 2 in Joules Reaction #3: 50.0mL 1.0M HCl(l) + 50.0mL 1.0M NaOH(l) NaCl + H2O + q3 q3 is the difference in Heat for reaction 3 in Joules Data Collection Table #3: Results collected by Rhona and Laura Initial Volume Mass of NaOH [m] Initial Final Temperature [t2] Reaction Temperature [t1] measured � 0.005 (g) � 0.2 (�C) � 0.2 (�C) ...read more.

+ NaOH(l) 50.0(HCl) + 50.0(NaOH) = 100. Results collected by Zheting and Melissa: (refer to Table #4) Reaction Solution Mass (g) 1 NaOH(s) + H2O(l) 1.97 + 100. = 102 2 HCl(l) + NaOH(s) 100. + 1.98 = 102 3 HCl(l) + NaOH(l) 50.0 + 50.0 = 100. 2. Calculating ?t Note: ?t = t2 - t1 Example Calculation: ?t of Reaction 1 = 22�C - 21�C = 1�C Uncertainty: + 0.2 �C 0.2 + 0.2 = 0.4. ?t has an uncertainty of 0.4 �C Results collected by Rhona and Laura: Reaction t1 (�C) t2 (�C) ?t (�C) 1 21 22 1 2 20.9 26.5 5.6 3 20.4 26.7 6.3 Results collected by Zheting and Melissa: Reaction t1 (�C) t2 (�C) ?t (�C) 1 25 29 4 2 21 32 11 3 21 28 7 3. Calculating q Note: q = Cp � m � ?t (Heat Capacity [Cp] = 4.18J/g�C) Example calculation: q of Reaction 1 = 4.18 J/g x 103g x 1�C = 430.54 J 1000 J = 1 kJ , ...read more.

Conclusion

?H / mols of NaOH Note: ?H is taken from part 4 and mols of NaOH is taken from part 5. Sample calculation: Reaction 1: -0.431 kJ / 0.0574 mol = Results collected by Rhona and Laura: Reaction ?H/mol NaOH (kJ/mol) 1 -5.88 2 -33.6 3 -52.6 Results collected by Zheting and Melissa: Reaction ?H/mol NaOH (kJ/mol) 1 -34.7 2 -94.7 3 -58.6 7. Theoretically, heat of reaction 1 + heat of reaction 3 = heat of reaction 2. Results collected by Rhona and Laura: Heat of Reaction 2: -33.6kJ/mol Combined heat of reaction 1 and 3: -58.48kJ/mol excesses the number for heat of reaction2. Percentage error: Experimental value � 100 Accepted value -58.48 kJ/mol � 100 = 174% Unrealistic - 33.6 kJ/mol Results collected by Zheting and Melissa: Heat of Reaction 2: -94.7kJ/mol Combined heat of reaction 1 and 3: -93.3kJ/mol Percentage error: Experimental value � 100 Accepted value - 93.3 kJ/mol � 100 = 98.5% - 94.7 kJ/mol ...read more.

    It is essential that the final centimetres before the thought endpoint are falling very slowly, so it's important to be patient and wait even if the endpoint seems to be far from there. So, we need to ensure that the final drops are added at a slow enough rate to be aware of the colour change.

    To do this I will test concentrations of 0.001, 0.002, 0.003, 0.004, 0.005, 0.006, 0.008 and 0.01mol/dm-3 of potassium bromide. I will then see how long each test took and decide how many of these trials I can do in the time I have available.

    The burette was filled with sodium thiosulphate solution. 4. 10 cm3 portions of the NaHCO3 solution was added into each of three conical flask. 5. The contents of flasks A and B were mixed thoroughly and a stopclock was started at once.

    An example of a strong acid would be Hydrochloric Acid which has almost 100% of its ions disassociated in water. A weak acid is defined as one that is only partially disassociated in water. An example of a weak acid would be Ethanoic Acid as only a small percentage of its ions can be disassociated in water.

    This action continues throughout the structure of the material. In this case the heat is transferred by conduction. This process can occur in all solids, liquids and gasses. 3. Radiation: When an object is heated it gains energy and emits heat by infrared radiation.

    Due to its high flammability in air, it is commonly used by the military in incendiary weapons3 (weapons used to create fires, or damage sensitive equipment) such as missiles and bombs, but also as a smoke screening agent. Once it ignites, it oxidises producing by-products of intense heat and thick
