In What way does Temperature effect the reaction time of Sulphurous Acid + Calcium Carbonate

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chemistry Investigation Tunde Omodara 5K In What way does Temperature effect the reaction time of Sulphurous Acid + Calcium Carbonate Calcium Sulphite + Water + CO2 The problem state that scientists have been puzzled as to why acid rain effects the stonework of some buildings faster than others. There are a number of factors that can be experimented to try and discover why this is the case. ...read more.

Middle

These are two questions I hope to answer. To carry out this experiment, as accurately as possible I will use the following method to test the effects of heat on the reaction. Firstly I will heat 10mls of HCL to a range of temperatures inside a beaker of water above a Bunsen burner. Once heated to a certain temperature I will add a small spoon of Calcium Carbonate quickly collecting the amount of carbon dioxide timing how long it takes to produce 6cm3. ...read more.

Conclusion

Apparatus: Thermometer, stop clock, glass beaker, 4 test tubes, 2 clamp stands, 1 boss, Bunsen burner I predict that as the temperature rises the faster and more aggressive the reaction will be. I can confidently predict this for two main reasons. Firstly I have observed in other reactions the effect heat has on an experiment: it speeds up reactions. Secondly I have learnt that the introduction of thermal energy to any reaction speeds up the movement of particles and therefore the reaction. ...read more.
