The rate of the reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The rate of the reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid Introduction In this experiment, I will use sodium thiosulphate plus hydrochloric acid to see how the rate of reaction change, by heat the sodium thiosulphate before add the acid. The equation of sodium thiosulphate plus hydrochloric acid is : Sodium thiosulphate+Hydrochloric acid � Sulphur + Sodium chloride + Sulphur dioxide + Water Aim To see how temperature affects the rate of the reaction between sodium thiosulphure and hydrochloric acid to form sulphur. Prediction If the temperature of sodium thiosulphate is higher, the rate of sulphur formed will be faster, that mean the time of reaction will be shorter. On the opposite side, if the temperature of the sodium thiosulphateis lower, the rate of sulphur form will be slower, that mean the reaction will be longer. Scientific background The rate of reaction always affect by the temperature, concentration of the solution and the subdivision. Temperature: If the temperature is higher, it will be reacts faster. Because higher temperature give more energy to the particles and let them have more frequent collision. It cause they move more quickly. The other reason is they can get more energy from high temperature to break down the chemical bonds. As the result, more of the collisions will produce more products, so the rate of reaction will be faster . Concentration of the solution: More concentrated solution will reacts faster, cause higher concentration solute particles make more frequent collisions The subdivision: ...read more.

after heated it to the planned temperature, put the hot sodium thiosulphate into the conical flask, and start the stop watch. 8. let it mix with the hydrochloric acid, look at the cross through the flask carefully. 9. wait the solution turn to milky, and until can't see the cross then stop the stop watch. 10. record the time it take and repeat above step to do the experiment against, but the temperature of the sodium thiosulphate will be less 5 degree every time until 15?. Result There are the result of my experiment(first time): Temperature of sodium thiosulphate(?) Time it turn to milky(can't see the cross)(sec.) 15 201 20 148 25 123 30 77 35 61 40 46 45 46 50 41 55 35 60 30 65 27 70 17 75 13 80 10 85 6 The second time result: Temperature of sodium thiosulphate(?)

Conclusion

But just one result in my first experiment in 45?, it should be shorter for few sec. The other result are all right. On the other side, I also find some difficult when I doing the experiment. Such as, when I mix that two solution, I can only use the thermometer or use my hands to shake the flask to help to mix it. So I think, next time I do the experiment I will use a glass rod to help to mix it. And when the sodium thiosulphate in the room temperature is 20?, so I need to use ice with cold water in a big bowl and put the beaker of sodium thiosulphate to make it cold until 15?. Also, when the temperature of sodium thiosulphate is low( in 15? -25?), it take ages to react. But the time let me to do the experiment is not enough. So I mix two different temperature sodium thiosulphate with acid at the same time. So I need two sets of equipment for make I can do this experiment on time. In this time, because I have enough data, I can't calculate how does the reaction slow down and stop. I need more data to calculate this. So if I do the experiment next time, I will also measure the temperature of the solution when it reacting and when does it stop to change. The reaction stop because of all the solution has reacted. If I get the temperature when it is reacting, I can also calculate the speed of the reaction. Connie Au Year10 44335 ...read more.

  1. The reaction between Sodium Thiosulphate and Hydrochloric Acid.

    I may have started the computer logger to early and so the reaction would have started until about 10 seconds into the logging. This would mean that the reaction would go on for 10 seconds longer at the end, and would thus explain the anomalous result.

  2. Measuring the reaction rate of sodium thiosulphate in hydrochloric acid

    Surface area is measured in square centimetres (cm2). When a catalyst is involved in the collisions between the reactant molecules, it reduces the activation energy required for the chemical change to take place; hence more collisions have sufficient energy for a reaction to occur. As a result, the reaction rate is increased.

  1. How does the Temperature affect the Rate of Reaction between Sodium Thiosulphate and Acid?

    The optimum concentration was the one that came out with the least percentage of error. The temperature ranges were from 20oC to 60oC. But for the trial experiments we just did room temperature (20oC) and 60oC as they are the two extremes and we know that for the other temperatures

  2. Chemistry-Sodium Thiosulphate

    This had to be done correctly, and I feel I did this quite well. Also to keep the test fair I must try and use the same standard for the 'X' not being visible. I could not decide on different visibilities, as it would be unfair on different concentrations.

    Once the 'X' was no longer visible the stopwatch was stopped. This was followed out for all 5 different values. Once the results were collected the same procedure was followed out for each value, along with 10cm3 of water. Results Table: idea. Sodium Thiosulphate (cm3) Hydrochloric Acid (cm3) Time (sec)

    way in the corner of the classroom where the coat pegs are. Also I have to be alert to respond to any instructions that the teacher has to put forward. The practical work has to be taken seriously and `playing about' cannot be an option, as this could endanger other people as well as me.

  1. Investigate how temperature affects the rate of reaction in the reaction of Sodium thiosulphate ...

    The theory behind this is explained in my prediction, the faster a particle, the more particle kinetic energy it will have so the more likely a particle from the sodium thiosulphate will react with the hydrochloric acid particles. In affect I believe the longer I heat the mixture the faster the rate of reaction will be.

  2. Reaction between Hydrochloric Acid and Sodium Thiosulphate.

    In terms of concentrations, I predict that it will have a greater effect on the rate of reaction because the reaction is exothermic. Thus even while I am testing concentration, heat will be given out by the reaction which will give more energy to the particles and so cause them to reach their activation energy sooner.
