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.

This is to get the results and plot on a graph to show the accurate results * To measure how long it takes to give off 100 cm3 of CO2 gas. To get the results on the table and on the graph.

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.

    This can be done in a few ways. Heating up a reaction gives the particles more energy, making more particles collide with the activation energy. Another way to speed up a reaction is to increase the concentration of reactants, which means that there are more particles to collide with each other making collisions occur more frequently.

    This slows down the rate of reaction. I will use only one size of calcium carbonate chip (small). Obviously, not every calcium carbonate chip will be the same size, but they will be roughly the same size. * For the experiment to be a fair one, I also need to keep the temperature of each experiment the same.
