Reaction between calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

the reaction between calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid AIM- My task is to investigate the reaction between calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid, which produces calcium chloride, carbon dioxide, and water. To do this I will conduct an experiment. Word Equation: Calcium + Hydrochloric Calcium + Carbon Dioxide + Water Carbonate Acid Chloride Chemical Equation: CaCo3 (s) + 2Hcl (aq) CaCl2 + Co2 (g) + H20 (l) The key variables in this experiment that affect the rate of reaction is, surface area, temperature, mass of CaCo3 and concentration of acid. The surface area can be investigated by increasing or decreasing the surface area of the calcium carbonate (marble) chips (i.e. have them as chips or powdered). The temperature can be investigated by increasing the temperature of water in the water trough. Increasing or decreasing the mass of the calcium carbonate chips used in the experiment can investigate the mass. The concentration can be investigated by increasing or decreasing the concentration of acid put on the marble chips. The variable I will be changing in order to conduct my experiment is the concentration of acid as this will have an effect on how much Carbon Dioxide is produced. There are a number of ways in which this experiment can be conducted. Firstly, the volume of Carbon Dioxide produced can be measured at regular intervals- using a gas syringe or a measuring cylinder. ...read more.

I will make sure this experiment is fair, by always using the same amount/mass of marble chips, making sure the same volume of water is used every time in the water trough, and making sure the water in the water trough is at a constant temperature. I will also make sure the same volume of acid is used. The only factor, I will be changing is the concentration of hydrochloric acid. I will make sure this experiment is safe, by always wearing goggles as acid is being used and there will be a chemical reaction. Also I will make sure, that if any acid is spilled, it should be cleared away quickly. If it gets on my hands or clothes, I will wash them thoroughly to avoid burning myself. If it spills on the desk, I will inform the teacher and clean it without getting it on my hands or clothes. The measuring cylinder I will use to measure the volume of Co2 produced will be 100ml because I will be able to measure quite accurately. The mass of the calcium carbonate chips I will be using is 10g. The volume of acid I will use is 30ml. This is the table I propose to record my results in: Volume of Acid Concentration Of Acid Time/ Minutes Mass of Marble chips Volume of Co2 produced Temp of H20 HYPOTHESIS- I think that as the concentration of acid increases the volume of Co2 produced will also increase. ...read more.

    As the acid has very high specific heat capacity, the errors in calculating the heat change of the reaction will be very significant if the heat absorbed by acid is not taken into account. Thus, the volume of acid should be obtained accurately to apply into E=mc?T in order to calculate the heat absorbed by the acid accurately.

    * Temperature. Usually reactions speed up with increasing temperature ("100C rise doubles rate"). * Physical state of reactants. Powders react faster than blocks - because they have a greater surface area and since the reaction occurs at the surface we get a faster rate. * The presence (and concentration/physical form)
