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.

    At low pressures, the syringe tends to stick and not move. 5. The angle of the syringe is important as then in a horizontal angle, the gas will be pushing a less heavy syringe as it is a few degrees upright.

    Therefore, all this must mean that the more sodium carbonate is used, the more calcium ions are removed, the softer the water is and the more likely it is for a lather to be created on the surface of the water.

    index gradually increases as the concentration of salt solution increases apart from when the concentration is at (0.000343 � 0.000010) mol cm-3. Basically, what the graph shows is that when the concentration of salt solution is increased, more salt is dissolved in the solution.

    When they react, they will create a cloudy liquid. I can use this fact to test the effect of concentration on the rate of reaction. In the experiment, I have a range of molars of acid available to me. I will test 0.5, 1 and 2 molars and observe which will give me the best result.

    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.
