Rates of Chemical Reactions

Introduction

Introduction The rate at which a chemical reaction occurs depends on several factors: the nature of the reaction, the concentrations of the reactants, the temperature, and the presence of possible catalysts. In this experiment we will study the kinetics of the reaction between iodine and acetone in acid solution: O CH3 - C - CH3 + I2 ? CH3 - C - CH2I + H+ + I- In order to determine what affects the rate of this reaction, we will be making 4 different mixtures, keeping constant the concentration and temperature in order to determine the order of each chemical in this reaction. Objective The objective of this lab is to determine the rate of the iodination of acetone by differing the amounts of reactants, finding the rate constant (k) and the order of the reaction in terms of each of the reactants. Equipment * 4.0 M Acetone * 1.0 M HCL * 0.0050 M I2 * Distilled Water * Three 50mL Burette * Two Double Burette Clamps * Support Stand * Three small funnels * 125mL Erlenmeyer ...read more.

IV. Fourth mixture was 20mL of I2 and 10mL of the other three. 6. For each mixtures we performed two runs.

Conclusion

x 10-5 /(0.80M)1.14(0.0010M)0.18(0.40M)1.24 = 1.11 x 10-5 /.0674647592 = 1.65 x 10-4 * Rate IV: k= 5.33 x 10-6 /(0.80M)1.14(0.0020M)0.18(0.20M)1.24 = 5.33 x 10-6 /.0325607537 = 1.64 x 10-4 CONCLUSION In the iodination of acetone, we found the order of the reaction with respect to acetone and HCl and find a value for the rate constant, k. Since the concentrations of acetone and HCl were much higher than that of I2, the concentrations of acetone and HCl changed very little. Thus the rate was determined by the time needed for iodine to be used up. Since iodine has color we can easily follow changes in iodine concentration visually. The equation, rate = k(A)m(H+)n(I2)p, can be simplified to rate = k[I2]/t since the values for acetone and HCl essentially remain constant during the course of any run. In mixtures I & IV the constant rate were similar, even though the iodine doubled in mixture IV, it is still the limited reagent. Mixtures II &III were similar do to the doubling of acetone in mixture II and HCL in mixture III. ...read more.

    As a result, no iodine is free to react with starch to form blue-black starch complex which forms the distinct blue-black solution. However, once the thiosulphate is exhausted, iodine is free to react with starch. Thus, there seemed to be a sudden formation of blue-black solution.
