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.

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.

    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.

    Therefore the activity of the lipase will also be due to the temperature at the start as the temperature will be different for each experiment. Consequently we will be seeing how bile salt concentration and temperature affect enzyme activity and not just how concentration of bile salts affects activity as we should.

  1. Discuss the Advantages and Disadvantages of being Ectothermic and Endothermic for Vertebrates.

    Many species are capable of maintaining temperatures slightly above or below that of the air, and thereby avoid extremes. The relatively poor thermal conductivity of air reduces the rate of heat loss from organisms, whilst water loss by evaporation may be used to cool the organism.
