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.

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

    by performing an experiment where I varied the volume of the hydrochloric acid solution and the mass of the calcium carbonate. I used the most and the least concentrated solution of hydrochloric acid, so that I could see what the minimum and maximum time the reaction would occur.

  2. to investigate how the concentration affects the rate of the reaction

    The amount used has to add up to 16ml. (Note: the amount of magnesium and hydrochloric acid has to be kept constant throughout the whole experiment. The only variable to be changed is the concentration of the acid) 3. I am going to take the reading of the hydrogen gas and I intend to do this every 20 seconds.

    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.
