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.

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.

    There is lag of time between the experiment happening, and timing it, as I have to put the Calcium carbonate into the acid, then time it, then put the stopper in. 2. Some of the CO2 will have escaped by that time, therefore, not an accurate experiment.

    Hard water contains dissolved calcium ions which cause the water to form 'scum', a solid white precipitate. Hard water also makes soap difficult to lather, again because of the calcium ions. So when soap is mixed with hard water, this is what happens: 2NaSt + CaSO4 ( CaSt2 + Na2SO4 (from soap)(from hard water)(scum)(left in solution)

Again, the (r1-r3) & (r1-r2) of those sugar solutions have been recorded in Appendix 2 together with the refractive index. Day 7 However, I realised that there was a huge error when I was gathering the results.

    The concentration of acid remained the same throughout the preliminary experiment because it was the values for the constants that we are finding out. Aim To investigate the size of the chips and the volume of hydrochloric acid used, so that in the main experiment I have little difficulty and reasonable values.

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.
