The effect of concentration of hydrochloric acid on the rate of reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The effect of concentration of hydrochloric acid on the rate of reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium. Aim: The aim of this investigation is to find out the effect of concentration of hydrochloric acid, on the rate of reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium. ...read more.

Middle

will increase. In this experiment I also expect the speed of the reaction to be proportional to the concentration of hydrochloric acid. If the concentration of the acid doubles, I expect the speed to double. I also predict that the greatest rate of reaction will be as soon as the reactants come into contact and as the reaction continues the rate of reaction will decrease. ...read more.

Conclusion

The closer the particles are, the more often the particles collide. With more collisions comes a greater chance of the reactants reacting. This also explains why I can predict that the greatest rate of reaction will be found as the reactants have come into contact, as they are both at their highest concentrations, and the rate of reaction decreases as the reaction continues as the concentration of the reactants decreases. Safety: ...read more.

    It should be regarded as a modification to experimental method: When mixing chemicals prior to starting the reaction, the Hydrogen peroxide should be kept separate from the acid and the Potassium Iodide. However, instead of keeping all the reactants separate and introducing more timing error in the final mixing, it
