Introduction

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.

Conclusion

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.

    The environment in which the experiment takes place should also be safe. Items such as coats, bags, stationary etc should be away from the workbench. After the experiment has been completed, the benches should be wiped in case any acid is on the surface.

    To be sure I can rely on my results I will repeat he experiment three times if necessary, because there is chance of inaccurate results for many reasons. e.g. 1. Temperature 2. Inaccurate Measuring 3. Unbalanced Scales 4. Mass of CaCo3 5.

    of the measuring cylinder whilst inverting it, then the cover can be removed. Looking at the graphs there is a pattern in the fact that 4M reacts twice as fast as 2M and four times faster then the 1M. This shows that as the concentration is doubled the time taken for the reaction is doubled.

  2. Investigate the factors, which affects how quickly Calcium carbonate reacts with hydrochloric acid.

    If a solution is more acid particles there will be more collision per second between the reacting particles, so if we keep the amount of same amount of acid particles in this experiment it would not effect our results. Mass of marble chips- The mass of the marble chips is a way of measuring the quantity of chips being used.

    almost completely into H+(aq) and Cl- (aq) ions. The Ka (dissociation constant) for this example of HCl that we are using is 107 mol dm-3 because the HCl consists mainly of ions (H+), therefore it is a stronger acid than water for example, where it consists mainly of molecules, Ka also reflects the extent of the protanation of the water molecules.

    of CO2 From these calculations it is visible to say that doubling the mass of carbonate doubles the volume of Carbon Dioxide produced. Tripling the mass of carbonate triples the volume of Carbon Dioxide produced. The relationship is directly proportional and the graph of mass against volume shows a straight line through the origin.
