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.

    For this experiment I predict that the higher the concentration of hydrochloric acid, the faster the rate of reaction will be. I predict that the reaction will occur as shown below: Calcium + hydrochloric calcium + water + carbon Carbonate acid chloride dioxide.

    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.

    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.

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

    Rates of reaction can be changed not only by catalysts but also by changes in temperature and by changes in concentrations. Raising the temperature increases the rate by increasing the kinetic energy of the molecules of the reactants, thereby increasing the number of collisions per second and the likelihood of transition states being achieved.

  2. How Concentration of Acid affects rate of reaction.

    Changing the acid will mean a change in the amount of H+ ions dissociated and so will change the strength of the acid. * Shaking / Stirring - this will mean the carbonates will come into contact with more molecules of acid (although at one time they will only be
