Introduction

Abdullah javed 10w/k science coursework Rates of reaction Aim: To investigate how the concentration of hydrochloric acid effects the reaction between hydrochloric acid and sodium thiosulphate. Introduction: I will be conducting an experiment on the rate of reaction for my gcse coursework. I will be doing this coursework for a period of two weeks. We will be reacting sodium thiosulphate with hydrochloric acid. And i will be investigating how the concentration of hydrochloric acid effects the reaction between hydrochloric acid and sodium thiosulphate. When sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid are mixed, A yellow precept of sulphur is produced the solution becomes increasingly difficult to see through as more and more sulphur is formed. ...read more.

Middle

The volume of Hcl is needs to be kept at 10cm3 constantly each time .start with 60cm3of sodium thiosulphate .last reaction will have only 10cm3of sodium thiosulphate.reactions will be completed when the x will disappears, for the timing to stop .three reaction will be made for each test ;this is done to gain different averages. Diagram: Apparatus: * Measuring cylinder(50cm3) * Small measuring cylinder * Conical flask(100cm3) * Sodium thiosulphate * Hydrochloric acid * Water * Stop watch * 2 beakers. * Paper with "x" on it Method: * Put 1.15 of calcium carbonate into the test tube. * Place the rubber bung connected to the gas syringe. ...read more.

Conclusion

I can see that as the concentration increased, the amount of gas produced was produced faster and more of it was produced. Evaluation: If I had waited longer, and continued recording the results until the time was up rather than until nothing could be seen. As when nothing could be seen the experiment could still be happening but very little could have been happening. I should have also have recorded my results every 5 seconds rather than 10 seconds to get more results to analyze. I would make sure I used the all the same apparatus if I had to continue my experiment at a different time because different apparatus have different measurements and that would effect the experiment. ...read more.

    If the solution of potassium iodide is more concentrated, it will have more particles of reactant colliding between the water molecules. This will increase the likelihood of collisions, between more important particles. If the solution of potassium iodide is less concentrated, it will have fewer particles of reactant colliding between the water molecules.

    Sometimes the syringe does not move, because the stopper has been stuck, because the calcium carbonate bits have stuck to the rim, therefore preventing the stopper from going in completely, therefore the CO2 escapes. (I have had 4 null results, because of this)

    Secondly, and more importantly, another preliminary test was conducted. 25.00cm3 of tapwater was measured out, and 0.500g of sodium carbonate added to it. Then the process was exactly the same as in the coursework experiment, but only samples of 0.500g and 2.000g of sodium carbonate (Na2CO3)

  1. What factors affect the rate pf reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid?

    The rate of reaction for the 0.045M solution of sodium thiosulphate was too fast compared to the line of best fit. This could be due to a number of factors such as a higher temperature or human error because it is often quite hard to decide when the cross disappears completely.

    I must also decide on an amount of thiosulphate to use. I could either use a range of 50 going down in tens or 25 going down in fives. I need to conduct a trial experiment in order to decide these two factors: Method for trials Take three different molars of acid; 0.5, 1 and 2.
