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.

    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).

    This time I feel is very appropriate because it allows a change but not a very big change and it will also allow the readings on my graph to look stable. And for each acid molarity/concentration I use, I will take the readings three times and these readings will have to be between 10 percent (%)

  2. Investigating how concentration affects rate of reaction

    To make sure temperature does not affect my experiment I will be measuring the temperature of three of the reaction, I will be using a thermometer for, 40 g/dm�, 25 g/dm� and 5 g/dm�. This will tell me if I need to use it in the main experiment, so I do not need to measure them all of the repeats.

    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.

    * By counting the amount of bubbles given off. * By timing the reaction until a certain volume of carbon dioxide is produced. * By measuring the amount of carbon dioxide gas produced every 10 seconds. I chose to measure the volume of carbon dioxide gas given off and by measuring the amount of carbon dioxide gas produced every

  1. Investigate the factors, which affects how quickly Calcium carbonate reacts with hydrochloric acid.

    The first factor I will explain will be surface area and this will be using the COLLISION THEORY Powdered calcium carbonate has much larger surface area than small lumps that in have a much greater surface area than the large lumps.
