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.

    Measure 5cm3 of 0.5 molar hydrochloric acid and 25cm3 of sodium thiosulphate. Place the conical flask on top of a piece of paper with an 'x' drawn on it. Pour in the hydrochloric acid and sodium thiosulphate. Swirl the flask gently and start the timer Observe the amount of time taken for 'x' to disappear.

  2. The Effect Of Concentration Of The Reaction Between Sodium Thiosulphate And Hydrochloric Acid

    Temperature Increasing the temperature of a solution means they gain more kinetic energy; therefore the particles take in more energy causing them to move faster and collide more often. A small increase in temperature causes significant changes to the distribution of energies, so the rate of reaction is increased.

    - Take all readings at eye- level to get the most accurate measurements. - Make sure that the temperature in the lab is kept constant. It should be maintained throughout the experiment. - Take more than 1 trial with each concentration so that an accurate average reading can be taken

  2. Rates of reaction between Sodium Thiosulphate and Hydrochloric Acid

    The reason I used burettes for my experiment was because they can accurately measure out the right amount needed for the concentration. 2. Empty the right amount of sodium thiosulphate (and water if needed) into the conical beaker, using the burettes.
