Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Experiment to investigate the effect of the concentration on the rate of reaction Introduction: - Rate of reaction is the measure of the length of time taken for a reaction to occur. Factors that affect the rate of reaction are (This is the general view, check hypothesis):- i. Temperature of the Solution ii. Surface Area of the Solid iii. Concentration of the Solution Rate of reaction can be measured using several techniques. These involve measuring the rate of which the product is made or the rate at which a reaction is used up. The balanced chemical equation and word equation reaction between Hydrochloric Acid and Calcium Carbonate is shown below:- The reaction: - Hydrochloric + Calcium Carbon + Calcium + Water Acid Carbonate Dioxide Carbonate 2HCl (aq) + CaCO3 (s) CO2 (g) + CaCl2 (aq) + H2O (l) It can be seen from the equation that this reaction produces CO2 gas. Therefore, it is possible to measure the rate of reaction by measuring the volume of the gas produced within a certain length of time. Aim: - To investigate the effect of changing the concentration of the Hydrochloric Acid on the rate of reaction between Hydrochloric Acid and Calcium Carbonate in the form of marble chips. Hypothesis: - What was kept constant: - 1. Temperature of the Acid 2. Concentration of Hydrochloric Acid 3. The total weight of the Marble Chips 4. Volume of the Hydrochloric Acid Preliminary Experiment: - This involved determine the size of the marble chips (calcium carbonate) to use in the experiment. Equipment used to determine this: - Conical Flask (250 ml) Measuring Cylinder (250 ml) Gas Syringe (Fitted with bung) Hydrochloric Acid Concentrations (1M, 2M, 3M, 4M) Delivery Tube Marble Chips in grams (small, medium and large) Goggles Timer Water Bath + thermometer (25?C) Digital Balance Diagram 1: - Method: - 1. Wear goggles for safety 2. Temperature kept constant by placing Hydrochloric Acid in a water bath (this was constant at temperature 25�C) ...read more.

Conclusion

Further investigations: - 1. Look at actual mathematical relationship in further detail between Hydrochloric acid and the rate of reaction by using different concentrations. E.g. 0.25M & 0.5M 0.5M & 1M 2. Look at actual mathematical relationship between mass of CaCO3 and rate of reaction. (1 and 2 would allow rate of reaction to be formulated) 3. Look at the effect of the factors on rate e.g. surface area of chips or the addition of catalysts.

  2. Investigation into the Effect Concentration has on Rate of Reaction.

    I will expect the rate of reaction to be highest when the liquid is all acid, undiluted. I can use the collision theory to explain why I think this. The collision theory says that for a reaction to take place, sufficiently charged collisions must take place between particles, and the

    The particles, because they are moving faster, will collide more often in a given time and they are more likely to be involved in more collisions. As a result of the particles moving at a faster rate a large proportion of the collisions will exceed the activation energy and hence the rate of reaction increases.

  2. Investigate how concentration of hydrochloric acid (HCL) affects its reaction with calcium carbonate (CaCO3).

    The larger the mass of the calcium carbonate chips, the faster the rate of reaction with the hydrochloric acid will be. This is because the acid will have more chips to react with, increasing the number of collisions. This, in turn increase the possible amount of Carbon dioxide there is to be produced.
