Calcium Carbonate + Hydrochloric Acid -> Calcium Chloride + Water + Carbon Dioxide CaCO3 + 2HCl -> CaCl 2 + H2O + CO2 Aim Investigate factors affecting rate of reaction between calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid. Method & Diagram Fill measuring cylinder with water Half fill water basin with water Invert measuring cylinder whilst covering open end with hand Submerge measuring cylinder (End with hand on) Put 25ml of acid into the conicle flask Have 2.0g of marble chips ready Put end of pipe into submerged conicle flask Prepare to start stopwatch Put marble chips in with acid & put bung on conicle flask whilst starting stopwatch Every 30s starting from 0s take a measurement of how much air there is in measuring cylinder (cm3) When you have done this with the first concentration of acid clean out the conicle flask and refill the measuring cylinder & repeat experiment with next concentration of acid. ...read more.

2.0M acid was so fast compared to 0.5M acid because in 2.0M acid there is a higher concentration of particles of acid so there is more chance of a collision between acid particles and calcium carbonate particles. In 0.5M acid it was so slow because there is a quater of the amount of acid particles in 2.0M acid. I can draw a labelled diagram which shows particles of acid colliding with marble chips and making gas and I can use this to explain what I found out in my results. Evaluation I cannot think of a better way of doing the experiment or collecting more accurate results except than using more detailed measuring cylinder's. I do think that taking averages helps because it gives an average result which means that it can be more accurate than lots of individual results. The main difficulties in doing this experiment I think were taking results accurately. ...read more.

    Put the flask on the clamp so that we do not have to hold it, and then put CaCO3 granules in it. We then as soon as the acid is in, we put the stopper on and time the experiment.

    * We then placed the delivery tube in a position where it was directly beneath the gas burette and also was going through the bung. * Three marble chips (weighing a total of 1 g) were dropped in the conical flask and the bung was immediately placed on the flask while the stopwatch was started.

    Volume of acid: This is a better factor to vary, but it depends on the mass of carbonate used. Also, it cannot be varied unless a tiny mass of carbonate is used. This is because the volume of acid must be in excess.

  2. The Factors Affecting the Volume of CO2 released when a Carbonate reacts with an ...

    When testing for one variable, all the other variables must remain constant. I know that tests which produce higher volumes of CO2 have greater accuracy. This is because the percentage of inaccuracy is much smaller when large values are used rather than when small values are used.

    The masses I shall use are: 1. 0.2g 2. 0.4g 3. 0.5g 4. 0.6g 5. 0.8g 6. 1.0g If I have extra time I shall conduct some results for other values. I thought it is good to have a good spread of results as it is easier to analyse and conclude a theory.

    By working out how long experiments will take, my actual experiments will be a lot more organised and I have a goal to work towards. So, from my preliminary experiment I can predict that this experiment will take approximately 167 minutes.

    The speed of the reaction is determined by a number of things, these are, for example: * Concentration * Temperature * Surface area * Catalyst if it's available which in this case there isn't one. Concentration The concentration can change the speed of reaction because of the amount of partials in the solution.
