Chemistry, The reaction between sodium

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chemistry, The reaction between sodium Aim - The aim of this experiment was to find out the rate of a reaction at different temperatures. - We also wanted to find out the rate of the reaction at a different temperature in bigger or smaller surface areas. Prediction - My prediction is, by increasing the temperature a reaction will happen more quickly. The more heat - The Faster reaction and more collision. The lower the temperature - The slower the reaction and less collision.

The Stop watch was used for timing how long it took for the reaction to happen. Method - For this experiment I first set up the apparatus with the apparatus that is shown above. - I then poured 5lm of HCL into a conical flask. - I then measured 10 ml of sodium thiosulphate, - I then I added it to the 5 ml of HCL. - I recorded how long it took for the reaction to take place, which was how long it took for the X to disappear. - With the times that I recorded from the experiment, I calculated an average. ...read more.

Conclusion

- This happened because the particles move more quickely and collide more often as stated in the collision theory. - The experiment proved my prediction correct which was based upon the collision theory. - My prediction was true as the higher the temperatures the faster the reaction. Evaluation - My results are reliable because I made it a fair test. - I used the same method each time. - I also used an average which meant there was no anomalous data. - Also, I proved my prediction which was based on scientific readings. Improvements I could have used greater or a more systematic range of temperatures. For example. 0, 10, 20, 30 etc. Extension To extend my experiment I could have investigated different factors. for example different surface areas and concentrations etc. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
