Concnetraion Hydorchloric Acid

Extracts from this document...


How does changing the Concentration of Hydrochloric Acid Affect the Rate of Reaction between Hydrochloric Acid and Magnesium? Dependent Variable Volume of Hydrogen Produced - the volume of hydrogen produced in cm3 will be affected by the independent variable which in this case is the concentration of the hydrochloric acid. There is no way in which the volume of hydrogen produced can be controlled however make sure none is lost by making sure that the gas syringe is correctly connected. Measurements will be taken every 30 seconds for the volume of hydrogen produced for 5 minutes. Independent Variable Concentration - the variable which will be controlled is the concentration of the hydrochloric acid. The concentrations which will be used are 2M, 1.8M, 1.6M, 1.4M, 1.2M, 1.0M, 0.8M, 0.6M, 0.4M and 0.2M. The concentrations will be changed by using different measurements of hydrochloric acid and water. ...read more.


This will ensure that the test will be fair As I am using the same length and same coil of magnesium the mass should always be kept constant. Mass - The mass of the magnesium will be kept constant throughout the experiment as the length and coil of magnesium is always kept constant. Other ways in which the experiment will be controlled is by using the same conical flask and gas syringe. I will also be using the same measuring equipment to measure out the hydrochloric acid and the water for all the concentration while also using the same ruler Method 1. Measure out the 50 cm3 of the 2 mol dm-3 hydrochloric acid using one of the measuring cylinders. Once measured out pour the 50 cm3 hydrochloric acid into the 100 cm3 conical flask. 2. Set up the apparatus as shown in the diagram in the page before, ensuring that the gas syringe is secure so that no hydrogen gets lost. ...read more.


To find out how the rate of reaction progresses throughout the experiment work out the rate of reaction for the volume of hydrogen produced every 30 seconds for 5 minutes . Safety When handling the hydrochloric acid make sure that care is taken. Avoid contact with the eyes or skin as it can cause serious permanent damage. If contact is made with the eye, immediately flush the eye with water for ten minutes then seek medical help, while if contact is made with the skin, wash area with plenty of water and remove any contaminated clothing. If swallowed drink plenty of water and seek medical help. Always wear safety glasses when handling hydrochloric acid.

    The hydrochloric acid that I am using is very similar to the acid that is in the stomach. Carbonates "...all react with acids to give off carbon dioxide." (page 169) will react with an acid to produce a salt + water + carbon dioxide.

  2. What effect does Acid rain have on germination?

    Most of the results I obtained support my original prediction. The length of the seedling did decrease as the percentage of acid increased. However, I did expect less than 8 seeds to germinate in 100% acid. This is because water activates the enzymes for breaking down food reserves enabling the plant to grow.

    Apparatus & Chemicals * Ribbons of Magnesium. * Hydrochloric acid of a defined molarity. * Measuring cylinder with which to measure the volume of acid. * Polystyrene cup in which the reaction will take place, also provides insulation. * A lid with hole to put over the polythene cup to prevent heat loss.

    H2SO4 added can be neglected were made. Answers to the Questions to be discussed: 1. What is the purpose of adding 25 cm3 of deionized water to the sample before each titration? The purpose of this is to provide better observation for the colour change at the end-point during the titration since the volume of the sample to be titrated is so small, just 1 cm3.

    Iodine is reasonably soluble in this medium as the following reaction: I2 (s) + I- = I3-. As a result, their exact volumes are not important. Q.4 The titration has to be carried out immediately after the addition of sulphuric acid as the sulphuric acid will acidify the mixture and casue the reaction: IO3-(aq)
