To find out how concentration affects the rate of reaction between Calcium Carbonate and Hydrochloric Acid.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chemistry Coursework Aim: To find out how concentration affects the rate of reaction between Calcium Carbonate and Hydrochloric Acid. Apparatus: Conical Flask, bung, large and small measuring cylinders, bowl/water bath, rubber tubing, scales, stop watch, Calcium Carbonate chips and Hydrochloric Acid. Scientific equation: 2HCl (aq) + CaCO3 (S) --> CaCl2 (aq) + H2O (l) + CO2 (g) Diagram: Safety Precautions: * Always wear goggles * Ware an apron * Wash hands after handling calcium chips * Be careful with the acid * Stick to written amounts of acid and calcium Variables: Input Output ...read more.

Put 'x' amount of acid and water solution into the conical flask. Place in 'x' weight of Calcium Carbonate chips then start the stop watch as soon as the bung is replaced in the conical flask. Time how long it takes to collect 50ml3 of gas. Now change the concentration of the acid in the solution and do the same two more times. When this has been done change the weight of calcium chips and perform experiment three times with that weight. ...read more.

Conclusion

Results: Concentration % Time At 50ml3 Average 60 3.43 minutes 3.48 minutes 3.29 minutes 3.40 minutes 70 2.30 minutes 2.43 minutes 2.32 minutes 2.35 minutes 80 2.08 minutes 2.04 minutes 2.11 minutes 2.08 minutes 90 1.23 minutes 1.51 minutes 1.38 minutes 1.37 minutes 100 1.09 minutes 1.22 minutes 1.23 minutes 1.18 minutes Conclusion: The time gets shorter as the concentration of acid gets greater; slowly the time decreases as the acid grows form 60% to 100%. This confirms my prediction to be correct. ...read more.

    Method of surface area * I set up the equipment as shown in fig 4 * I weight out 2 gram of Large marble, and measured out 20ml with the Measuring cylinder of hydrochloric acid (2m). * I placed the acid in the conical flask.

    A more concentrated substance has more reactant particles in a given volume than a more dilute substance. As there are more particles, the frequency of successful collisions is greater, and the reactions happen faster. When a reaction takes place, the particles of the reacting substance must collide with each other.

  2. Does the concentration of hydrochloric acid affect its rate of reaction with calcium carbonate?

    A certain mass of marble chips will have a larger surface area, and if smaller chips are used, their surface area will be larger. Next, I decided how much hydrochloric acid solution and calcium carbonate (marble chips) to use. I came to my final decision, (50ml of hydrochloric acid and 5g of marble chips)

    However I am using 50cm3- 10cm3 of acid So to work out the number of moles in the solution I must divide the molarity (the amount of acid) by 1000cm2. So: 50cm3 of acid 0.05M 40cm3 of acid 0.04M 30cm3 of acid 0.03M 20cm3 of acid 0.02M 10cm3 of acid

    2. Also, for my experiment I have decided to change the amount of acid I use from 20millilitres (ml) to 16millilitres (ml). I have done this because when I want tot reduce the molarity by diluting the acid, 16ml would be easy to use and find the accurate measures of the water and acid to be used for the reaction.

    distilled water because there will be no reaction between just water and hydrochloric acid. This is because water does not react with hydrochloric acid. This will be the set out of my experiment: Safety * I will wear my lab coat, * I will wear my safety glasses at all

    This way I can observe the different affects different concentrations of hydrochloric acid have on the calcium carbonate and the rate of reaction. I will measure the amount of carbon dioxide that is given off by the calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid.
