Introduction

Saeed Sattar The Thiosulphate Reaction Plan The effect of temperature on the rate of a reaction can be studied using the reaction between sodium thiosulphate solution and dilute hydrochloric acid. Sodium + Dilute --> Sodium + Water + Sulphur + Sulphur Thiosulphate Hydrochloric Chloride Dioxide Acid When sodium thiosulphate solution and dilute hydrochloric acid are mixed, the solution goes cloudy. ...read more.

Middle

Preliminary Tests Test 1: We are going to be using thiosulphate at 0.25 maulers and 2.0 maulers. We will keep the temperature the same, which will be room temperature. We will do both the tests at the same time and see how long it takes to disappear. ...read more.

Conclusion

In another beaker we will cool the dilute hydrochloric acid to 20�C. We will do both the tests at the same time and see how long it takes to disappear. The reason we are doing these tests to test the different speeds at which they react. Prediction I predict that the higher the concentration, the faster the faster the 'x' will disappear. Reasons for prediction Method Fair Test Results Table ...read more.

    reaction time was endless, the colour didn't change at all, this is because there was no hydrochloric acid present only water and Sodium Thiosulphate what happened was it changed the Sodium Thiosulphate concentration so no reaction took place. I have noticed that there is a pattern.

    However, if there is too little, the rate of reaction will decrease because there less acid for the marble to react with, effectively meaning there is more to react. Will be kept constant by accurate measurements using a pipette and a measuring cylinder.

    Therefore if I use a lid it will slow down these processes. The material of the lid will make an enormous difference, if a lid is made of paper or card then its insulation properties will be at a minimum, on the other hand if the material used for a

  2. Rate of Reaction between Sodium Thiosulphate and Dilute Hydrochloric acid

    Next, I will measure out the distilled water and Sodium Thiosulphate in the 50ml measuring cylinder and the acid in the 10ml cylinder because the amount of acid that I will need to obtain will be a lot less so this way I could be more accurate about it.

  1. Rate of Reaction CW

    The dependant variable is what I will be measuring, that is the time taken for all the magnesium to dissolve. The controlled variables is what are going to stay the same to keep the investigation fair; i.e. the temperature of the acid, the temperature of the water, the total volume

  2. Rates of reaction

    Moreover, it will be the hottest when the reaction between magnesium and copper sulphate takes place. > The reaction between magnesium and copper sulphate will be very vigorous and therefore with temperature, one can also expect to see a lot of effervescence and also hear a fizzy noise.

  1. What factors affect the rate pf reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid?

    quite reliable as all the times were with in 5% of each other. This is very accurate and reliable. My results also showed a pattern that emerged which matched my prediction. From the results I can see that as the concentration of sodium thiosulphate increases the reaction rate increases as well, this proves my prediction because of the collision theory.

  2. Rates of Reaction

    However, for the reaction to take place, the top section of the curve must exceed the activation point, so that most of the particles posses the minimal amount of energy in order to collide and react.
