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.

    Some of these are: * The temperature * The amount of potassium carbonate * The amount of acid * The water in the measuring cylinder used for collecting gas, the same. (This means I must change it every time because the CO2 would dissolve in the water, so between results I must refresh the water).

    + H2O (l) H3O+(aq) + Cl-(aq) (Heat is given out.) Heat is given out as new bonds have been formed, (H3O+(aq) ), this is an exothermic reaction. Therefore, the temperature of the solution of acid/water is heated up slightly, this adds energy to the reaction, affecting how quickly the particles move, therefore increasing its rate of

    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.

    Therefore, from this preliminary experiment, I have decided to do the following things for my real experiment: 1. The amount of magnesium to be used will be reduced to 0.06gramms. I have decided to use this amount because if a lower amount is used (like 0.05)

    Then using pipettes I will put them into a beaker which is sitting on top of a piece of paper with a cross on it and time the reaction until I can no longer see the cross from looking on top.

  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
