The Rate Of Reaction Between Sodium Thiosulphate And Hydrochloric Acid At Different Concentrations

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Rate Of Reaction Between Sodium Thiosulphate And Hydrochloric Acid At Different Concentrations Plan I intend to investigate the reaction time between Hydrochloric Acid and Sodium Thiosulphate at different concentrations. Sodium + Hydrochloric Sodium + Sulphur + Sulphur Thiosulphate Acid Chloride Dioxide Na S O + HCl NaCl + H O + SO The experiments will be done under safe conditions, these are: I will be wearing goggles because chemicals are being used: all windows and doors will be open because sulphur dioxide is being produced. All stools and bags will be under the desks. I will get the chemicals one at a time for safety reasons. The apparatus I will be using are: 10cm measuring cylinder, 25cm measuring cylinder, 100cm measuring cylinder, 250cm conical flask, stop clock, Sodium Thiosulphate, Hydrochloric Acid, Water and a Piece of Paper. I will measure 40cm of water using the 100cm measuring cylinder and 10cm of sodium thiosulphate using the 10cm measuring cylinder. ...read more.

I will use the same piece of paper with a cross on it, so the cross is the same colour and shade. Apparatus 10cm measuring cylinder, 25cm measuring cylinder, 100cm measuring cylinder, 250cm conical flask, stop clock, Sodium Thiosulphate, Hydrochloric Acid, Water and a Piece of Paper. Method We measured 40cm of water using the 100cm measuring cylinder and 10cm of sodium thiosulphate using the 10cm measuring cylinder. We put them into the 250cm conical flask. We added 5cm hydrochloric acid using the 10cm measuring cylinder to the solution. We did the same for the 20cm sodium thiosulphate and 30cm water solution, the 30cm sodium thiosulphate and 20cm water solution, the 40cm sodium thiosulphate and 10cm water solution, and the 50cm sodium thiosulphate and 0cm water solution. We added 5 cm of hydrochloric acid to all of the solutions. We recorded the results below in the table. ...read more.

Conclusion

On the graph line C shows that when the concentration = 40cm Sodium Thiosulphate and 10cm water, the rate of reaction is 38 seconds. I found that when the volume of Sodium Thiosulphate in the solution doubles the rate of reaction does not. In fact it is close to half of the time. Evaluation The results indicate that the experiment was a sensible way to test the concentration of Sodium Thiosulphate has an influence in the role of a chemical reaction. The results obtained in the experiment were consistent and therefore reliable. However, having the Sodium Thiosulphate solution and the Hydrochloric Acid at the same temperature before the start of the experiment. This could have increased the accuracy of the results. We could have made the measurements of the volume of Sodium Thiosulphate, Water and Hydrochloric Acid more accurate by using Pipettes. We could have also used a light sensor to measure the degree of opaqueness of the cross to a better degree of accuracy. Ziggy Niblett Chemistry Coursework ...read more.

    It will be Technique 2 (Time for reaction to complete) Technique 2-Reaction time Equipment: -100cm3 beaker -Hydrochloric acid (maximum concentration=2mol dm-3) -Stop clock -Calcium carbonate powder Method I will measure how long it takes for the reaction between varying concentrations of HCl acid and a set amount of calcium carbonate powder, (1.00 grams).

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

    A successful collision is when the reactant particles collide into each other and react to form a new product. If the reactant particles do not possess enough activation energy then a new product will not be formed even if they do collide.

  1. Find out what the rate of reaction is for sodium thiosulphate in hydrochloric acid.

    Experiment I will use 10ml hydrochloric acid as my constant variable and I will test the rate of reaction with 10ml sodium thiosulphate, then 9ml sodium thiosulphate and 1ml water, then 8ml sodium thiosulphate and 2 ml water and so on until I get to 5ml sodium thiosulphate and 5ml water.

  2. Rates of reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid

    In order to do this, we have to make sure that the only thing changing in each experiment is the concentration. Controlled variables * The concentration of the distilled water will be kept constant in each experiment. This is the first time I have heard of distilled water, here - shouldn't you mention it above???
