Chemistry Coursework : Neutralisation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chemistry Coursework : Neutralisation Prediction: I predict that the reaction will be endothermic. If we increase the concentration of acid, the temperature change will increase. Background information: Reactions: An EXOTHERMIC REACTION is one which usually one which gives out energy to the surroundungs, usuually in the form of heat and usually shown by a rise in temperature. An ENDOTHERMIC REACTION is one which takes in energy from the surroundings, usually in the form of heat and usually shown by a fall in temperature. ...read more.

Middle

For endothermic reactions the energy change is positive , i.e heat is needed. A exothermic energy change indicates an exothermic reaction, ie heat is released. Virtually all chemical reactions involve energy changes. Whether they are exothermic or endothermic depends on the balance between the energy needed to break bonds in the reactant, and the energy released when bonds are made in the products. Aparatus: 3 Polystyrene beackers 3 Plastic lids 3 Thermometres (-10 - 110*C) 3 Measuring cylinders (50ml) ...read more.

Conclusion

Also we should wait 30 seconds before taking the temperature of each solution. We found out that all in our pilot method would also apply for our real method, as our prediction reflected are results. Method: Measure 20ml of hydrochloric acid and take the temperature after leaving it for 30 seconds. Then in a seperate measuring cylinder measure out 20ml of Sodium hydroxide, pour into a polystyrene beaker, and again take the temperature after 30 seconds. Mix both of them together and record the highest temperature. Repeat this for every temperature as shown in the table below: ...read more.

A group of ten women of a young age were used, although finding subjects that would pass the above criteria proved to be somewhat more difficult than expected and a leniency on the controlled variables may have to be allowed.

    As a result, too high temperatures reduce enzyme activity. All enzymes have an optimum temperature, which is the point in which the enzymes are most active. Most enzymes in humans have an optimum temperature of about 37�C, but in most plants it is 25�C. There are some molecules that change the possibility that an enzyme will bind to its substrate.

    Ectotherms also regulate temperature through physiological means. They do not have insulatory fat or scales, for example, because these would interfere with heat gain (or loss). Many lizards are able to change their peripheral circulation. When they are hot the dermal blood vessels dilate to increase the blood flow close

    Akhmerov found that in certain endotherms oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria was uncoupled, thereby producing heat and not ATP (1986). It has been proposed that insulation evolved at first, as this would have limited a fluctuation in body temperature (Crawshaw et al., 1982), aiding specialisation of biochemical processes.
