nge and record how many drops you used. � Get the clamp ready and place the tile on the clamp, then place the conical flask on the tile. Rinse your burette with your diluted HCl to replace any previous liquids which may intervene in the results. Now secure the burette to the clamp making sure the nozzle is facing in the conical flask. You should now have your apparatus set-up like this: 30/5230/35230/image006.gif"> Funnel Burette filled with diluted HCl Conical Flask Clamp Tile Ca(OH) and Indicator � Now everything should be ready. From your volumetric flask, empty out the diluted HCl into a normal beaker. Using this beaker fill the burette up to the 0 mark with a funnel. � Start titrating slowly until the solution has totally reacted. Then record the results noting how much HCl you used. Record the results in a suitable format and repeat the experiment at least three more time for more accuracy. Finally record the average (mean) titre. ...read more.

In this part of the investigation I aim to determine the final concentration of the limewater solution. I will go through my calculation step by step and explain what I am doing along the way. Starting off, lets look at what we have. The equation for the reaction is: 30/5230/35230/image001.gif"> Ca(OH)2(aq) + 2HCl(aq) CaCl(aq) + 2H2O(L). For the Ca(OH) we are trying to find the concentration in mol g dm-3. However we have the volume (10.0cm3 is how much we ... er solution. This would change the colour of the solution to light orange which would change to pink by the end of the titration. 5. After that I will place the flask onto a white tile placed on a clamp stand. ...read more.

My results show that I got two identical results and one just 1.1cm3 off. Which suggests that I have been accurate and precise during the experiment. By being accurate it came about by specific apparatus I used, which restricted errors. However during the experiment I came across an array o ...... ...read more.

  1. concentration of limewater

    + Ca2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) Ca2+(aq) + 2Cl-(aq) + 2H2O(l) By cancelling out the spectator ions we get the following ionic equation: 2H+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) 2H2O(l) By dividing by 2 we get the simplest ratio: H+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) H2O(l) This ionic equation applies to all neutralisation reactions. The H+ ions can from any acid; the OH- ions can come from any alkali.

    with the specific procedure that must be followed. Secondly, the measuring cylinder used to measure the Milk of Magnesia mixture could have been rinsed out with distilled water and the contents emptied into the conical flask, more distilled water, which had been measured could have been added to make a larger volume as this would not affect the

  1. Investigating how concentration affects rate of reaction

    I plotted a graph of log to the base e of reaction rate against the reciprocal of the temperature in Kelvin (1/temperature). This gave me a gradient of -Ea/R as is mentioned in the section earlier in my investigation about the Arrhenius equation.

  2. Neutralization investigation

    Accuracy There are various types of indicators I can use. These include universal indicator, phenolphthalein and methyl indicator. These indicators work by reacting with the ions inside the substance that is being made. They are not part of the chemical reaction, they simply measure the reaction.
