Introduction

The rates of reaction The purpose of our investigation was to find out if the surface area of marble chips, affect the rate of reaction and to find out which method would give the best and most accurate results. We did this by measuring out the same volume of acid and add it to a measuring cylinder. ...read more.

Middle

As we tipped in the marble powder to the acid solution we started the stop watch and waited for the marble powder to dissolve. Apparatus: Measuring tube Thermometer Large measuring cylinder Stop watch Acid Small/Large/Powdered Marble chips Set of scales When finishing our experiment we consulted a table of results. Which looked something like this: Table 1 Acid used Sizes & weight Temperature �C Time Taken 40 cm3 Powder 0.96g 22�C 8.02 secs 40 cm3 ...read more.

Conclusion

1.42g 22�C 38 mins 35 secs I think that it makes a big difference of the rate of reaction depending on the surface area of marble chips and the amount of acid cm3 there is. So as we can see on table one that there is less weight of the marble then on table 2. But the amount of acid stayed the same ?? ?? ?? ??

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay


This report is limited significantly by its length. It missed some of the key elements to successfully investigate and draw conclusions about the effect of surface area on the rate of reaction. There are a number of improvements suggested throughout the report.

    This relates to the trend of the graph which moves in a constant line until the temperatures began to be over 400C and 500C. The reason for this is that the time for the experiments to go cloudy (produce sulphur)

    This is because it would be impractical to "agitate" i.e. stirring a suspension manually the same number of times at the same speed for the required time. This method would lead to inaccuracies in results and therefore any conclusions drawn from it would also be inaccurate.

    The following graphs show results typical to first order reactions: The first zero order graph showing concentration vs. time is such that the time it takes for the concentration of the reactant to be halved is constant; this is known as half-life.

    To determine the order of a reaction by graphical means: By performing an experiment repeatedly, varying the concentrations of a particular variable whilst keeping the other volumes and conditions constant, it is possible to determine the order of reaction with respect to that chemical.

    Unlike competitive inhibitors, non-competitive inhibitors are not affected by substrate concentration because increasing the concentration of substrate molecules does not affect the inhibitors ability to join to the enzyme. This means that a non-competitive inhibitor will always reduce the rate of reaction even if the substrate concentration is high.
