Introduction

Science Chemistry Investigation I am going to investigate at which concentration of hydrochloric acid, marble breaks down fastest to make hydrogen. The concentrations are measured in molars, we are a going to use 0.1 0.5, 1 and 2 molars. I am going to use ml of hydrochloric acid, of marble chips with a surface area and the temperature will be room temperature which is roughly 25 degrees. This can't be kept constant but it will not change much during the experiment. The amounts of acid and the size, amount and surface area of the marble chips will be kept the same. The time between readings will be kept the same, it will be 20 seconds, and the size of the conical flask will be kept the same. ...read more.

Middle

Readings are taken every 20 seconds until there are three results that are the same, and then the experiment is stopped. Same experiment will be carried out three times so that one set of average results and measurements can be used. Labelled diagram of equipment used and set up as used during the experiment - It is important that the temperature of the room and the surface area of the marble chips are kept as fair as possible. If the room temperature was higher at one point in the experiment it would warm the experiment up causing the two substances to react quicker. The warmer particles are the faster they move about, making it more often it hits and reacts with other particles. ...read more.

  1. Investigating the Rate of the Reaction between Bromide and Bromate Ions in Acid Solution

    Another example of a possible procedural error in my experiment is the mixing of reactants. To ensure the reaction could occur fully, the reactants needed to be completely mixed. I poured the contents of beaker X back into beaker Y twice to reduce this error, however when boiling tubes were

  2. Investigating how concentration affects rate of reaction

    1000 = 0.2975g dissolved in enough distilled water to make 250ml of solution. Risk Assessment (6) The following risk assessments are based on concentrated solutions of each substance. The concentrations I will be using are much more diluted that the solutions mentioned below to ensure that my experiment is safer.

  1. Magnesium and hydrochloric acid react together readily. Plan and carry out an investigation testing ...

    All of the concentrations used in the preliminary work produced similar results so I decided instead to test concentrations a little further apart, for the main experiment. 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.5 3.0 Increasing concentration. If I use a wider variety of concentrations I think that my results will be more varied.

  2. How do we make Magnesium and Hydrochloric acid react faster?

    I think that when the concentration of the hydrochloric acid doubles, the rate of the reaction doubles. The point is that if we add more hydrochloric acid molecules, we are adding more energy. A fixed amount of energy called activation energy (Ea)
