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.

    I am not going to go into any deeper for electronic conductors as my investigation focuses on solutions, which is electrolytic conductors. Conduction occurs in electrolytic conductors because there is a transport of ions from one part of the conductor to another, which means that both positive ions and negative ions migrate toward electrodes.

  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.

    Catalyst is very important in industry because they speed up reaction even at low temperatures. This means that less fuel is need, so money is saved. The optimum temperature for a catalyst is at the degree of 37. If the temperature is too high the catalyst will denature.
