Introduction

DETERMINATION OF THE RELATIVE COMPOSITION OF A MIXTURE SOLUTION AIM To determine the relative composition of a mixture solution containing sodium ethane-1, 2-dioate and ethane-1, 2-dioic acid. INTRODUCTION Potassium permanganate KMn is a strong oxidizing agent which reacts with reducing agent ethanedioate ion to give and C + 2 Mn+ 16 2+8+10 Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) reacts with acid to give water . the reaction is shown with the following equation + To investigate the relative composition of the mixture solution, it has to be titrated with NaOH first with phenolphthalein as indicator and then with acidify KMn as Mn react with both compound. KMnhas to be acidified first, otherwise brown ppt of Mn is formed instead of 2 H2O + MnO4- + 3 e- � Mn+ 4 In addition to that, the reaction solution has to be warmed to about 70 as the reaction rate is very slow. ...read more.

Conclusion

4Mn 4Mn +3 In addition, if hot Potassium permanganate solution is added to the burette, it may cause expansion of burette, causing inaccurate measurement. END POINT The end-point is not very permanent because if the Mn ion is in large excess, the following reaction occur: 2 Mn+3+ 2 +4 DECOPOSITION OF POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE Potassium permanganate is easily decomposed and the decomposition is speed up by light, heat, acids, base, reducing agent in air such as hydrogen sulphide gas, , , and even by the end-product Therefore, it should be stored in brown bottle and should be standardized before use. ABSORPTION OF WATER BY SODIUM HYDROXIDE sodium hydroxide absorb water from air. The volume of solution increase, and hence cause a decrease in concentration, causing inaccurate calculation CONCLUSION The concentration of sodium ethane-1,2-dioate is 1.48xM while ethane-1, 2-dioic acid's is 2.36 x M REFERFERNCE Wikipedia ?? ?? ?? ??

    Finding out how much acid there is in a solution

    We don't use this indicator because the colour change isn't clear. Phenolphthalein is colourless, and the ion is bright pink. If extra positive hydrogen ions are added, the colour changes to colourless after the point of equivalence. The point of equivalence is pH 9.3.

    The reasons are to be discussed below. Firstly, many human errors have occurred in the titration. For example, while shaking the solution inside the conical flask, I accidentally spilt a drop onto the table. A smaller amount of HCl would be required to reach the end point in this case.

    the molarity of Na2S2O3 is 2.0 mol dm-3 I used the above formula. By rearranging the formula like this: Molarity dilute = Molarity Conc. X Volume Conc. Volume dilute Will allow me to work out the molarity of the HCl for the fist concentration on the result table I: Molarity dilute = Molarity Conc.

  1. detremining the rate equation

    As the concentration increases the rate also increased in a constant pattern. This graph also eliminates the possibility of a zero order reaction because I did not obtain a straight horizontal line. Instead I got a directly proportional graph. as you use can see from the results table and the

    3. Acid is added quickly to the base in the Styrofoam cup. During this period, the cup must be covered properly to prevent any lost of the heat. The cup is stirred carefully and the temperature is recorded for every 10 ? 20 seconds until reach to a constant temperature changing.
