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.

    Marble Chips and Hydrochloric Acid.

    We will take the results every 10 seconds and read them from the measuring cylinder. Taking the results every 10 seconds will allow us to obtain an accurate set of results, which we can then input into a graph. We are performing this experiment in groups, so that we can ensure that each aspect of the experiment is performed accurately.

    be 20ml and the temperature of the reaction will be kept at room temperature. Also, no catalysts will be used. Because the concentration of acid will be changed, it is likely that the time in which 20cm3 of carbon dioxide will also change, as is proved by the preliminary experiment.

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

    The point of the anomalous result was above the line of best fit. From this I can tell that too much gas was being produced. There is only one many anomalies for the 2 molar acid set of results, so I can again say that the results are pretty reliable.

    then it means that there are more particles in the acid to react with the marble chips. If there are more particles present to react with the marble chips, then the rate of reaction will increase. Measurements For this investigation, I will take 20 readings over a range of 10 minutes.

    This is based on the collision theory that states that for a reaction to occur between two particles, an effective collision must take place to form product molecules. The reaction rate is the measure of how frequently effective collisions occur.

  1. How does the concentration of HCl affect the rate of reaction with CaCO3?

    the concentration of hydrochloric acid, we increased the number of hydrochloric molecules in the buckler flask, allowing more collisions with the marble molecules, therefore creating more products at a quicker rate each time! Evaluation My experiment went very well, we got some consistent results and our method was quite reliable and accurate.

  2. Investigating the rate of reaction between hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate

    This is because at double the heat the ions move double as fast so are twice as likely to have collisions. on my second graph that shows the rate of reaction it would be a steady curve increasing with the concentration and as you can see it is.
