Introduction

Our assignment was to produce a piece of coursework investigating the rates of reaction, and the effect different changes have on them. The rate of reaction is the speed of a chemical reactions, usually used in terms of the concentrations of reactant consumed in a given time. What could affect the rate of a reaction * Temperature * Concentration (of solution) * Surface are (of solid reactants), * And Catalyst I have chosen to investigate the effect the concentration will have on the rate of reaction. This is because it is the easiest and the most practical to investigate - *it would take longer to prepare a solid in powdered and unpowdered form, *it is difficult to get accurate readings due to the probability of human errors, *the use of a catalyst complicates things, and if used incorrectly could affect the end results. ...read more.

Middle

This means that both graphs drawn up in my analysis will have positive correlation, and will probably be curved as the increase in rate of reaction will not be exactly the same as the concentration is increased. The reason I predict this is because if the concentration of a solution is increased there are more reactant particles. This increases the probability of reactant particles colliding with each other. Apparatus * Beaker *Glass rod *Conical Flask *100cm( Cylinder *10cm( Cylinder *Stop Watch *Balance * X marked paper Method: -. First we measured the amount of crystals that we wanted Then we added the crystals to the beaker. After that we added the 100cm( of water to the beaker. ...read more.

Conclusion

We decided that the concentrations were going to range from 10g/unit - 60g/unit the reason for this is because anything lower than 10g/unit would take to long and anything higher than 60g/unit would be to fast and could be affected majourly by the reaction time of the person on the stopwatch. End Results To work out the rate of reaction you divide 1 by the time taken for the reaction to take place. Analysis In this experiment I have found out that the lower the concentration the lower the rate of reaction is. I know this because my graph has a positive correlation and is almost a straight line, with a few out layers which could be due to human error during the experiment. However using a line of best fit we can figure out what the rate of reaction should be. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

1. ## Investigating making Epsom salts by varying the rates of reaction.

I have chosen the concentrations of 100%, 9:1, 8:2, 7:3. The way in which the concentrations were worked out is that we are allowed to have 1x molar of sulphuric acid which is basically 10cm of acid = 100%. So to work out the concentrations we wanted all we did

I decided which temperatures and concentrations to use during my preliminary series of experiments - 1 mol/dm3 of HCl (acid concentration will be fixed) 10-35g/dm3 of sodium thiosulphate (all of these concentrations will be tested in turn going up in steps of 5g/dm3)

Also for accuracy I will also look at the cross form the same distance and angle. Reliability ? To make the results reliable the experiment shall be repeated to an minimum of three times but it could be repeated more than thrice to give much reliable set of data.

2. ## Enzyme Coursework.

I will only be timing the first 30 seconds on the experiment, as if I did this for longer, then I would need more time to do the experiment as I am pushed for time. The oxygen bubbles will be counted and written into a table in the results.

The point of highest energy during bond breaking and bond formation is called the transition state of the molecular process. The difference between the energy of the transition state and that of the reacting molecules is the activation energy that must be exceeded for a reaction to occur.

However I have chosen to vary the sodium thiosulphate as it is available in larger amounts, and various concentrations are prepared. When the temperature is constant room temperature will be used as the temperature as it more practical and will not need to be monitored.
