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.

    Collisions between reacting particles are therefore more likely to occur. Looking at my table of results the fastest reaction made was with no water (50cm3 Hydrochloric Acid) the average time for this reaction was 95 seconds. The slowest reaction made was the with 50cm3 water and no Hydrochloric Acid this

    Amount of marble chips This also needs to be kept constant because too much will make the reaction slow down as there is more to react. Thus, it will increase the rate of the reaction if too little marble is added because there is less to react.

  2. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. The Effect Of Concentration Of The Reaction Between Sodium Thiosulphate And Hydrochloric Acid

    This is because as the solution of hydrochloric acid becomes more dilute with water, the reaction will decrease, as the particles of hydrochloric acid will not collide with the particles of sodium thiosulphate as often. Equipment In this experiment, I will be using the following equipment safely and accurately.

  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.
