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.

    Starting with the slowest times and finishing with the fastest times of the reaction. However it was not a perfect curve therefore my prediction was not exactly the same as my results although it was quite close. My results were very close to my prediction apart from some anomalous results.

    otherwise, one might find that because of gravity, in one experiment it runs smoothly and in the next, because of the angle, the syringe is not moving at all. Answer: make the syringe parallel to the desk, so there is fairness in all the experiments.

    So the sodium carbonate effectively lessens the effect of calcium ions in the water, thus softening it and making it easier for a lather to be formed. The calcium carbonate is precipitated and this removes the hardness from the water.

    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.

    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.

  2. What effects the rate of a reaction

    Hydrochloric Acid is made up from Hydrogen chloride. Hydrogen chloride is a colourless gas with a pungent, choking smell. It gives steamy fumes in moist air and is very soluble in water, forming Hydrochloric Acid. This is a strong acid. Hydrochloric acid is easily oxidised by such compounds as Manganese Oxide.
