Introduction

Lewis Brend Friday. 28 September 2001 Rates of Reaction Aim: To find out how temperature will effect the rate of reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid. Apparatus: Stop-clock Conical flask Thermometer Beaker Tripod Gauze Bunsen Burner Paper with a cross on it Safety Specs Heat Mat Measuring Cylinders Sodium Thiosulphate Hydrochloric Acid Prediction: My prediction is that the ...read more.

Middle

Light the Bunsen burner and fill a beaker with 100ml of water, then measure 20ml in a measuring cylinder and put into a conical flask. Put the conical flask in with the beaker. Keep checking the temperature by using a thermometer. ...read more.

Conclusion

Once it has gone this colour stop the sop-clock and take note of the time. Then do this for the rest of the temperatures. This will be made a fair test by not stirring the acids and by doing the exact same procedure to the other tests. Doing this will make it a fair test. Results: Temperature Time Taken 20� 131.16 30� 82.63 40� 31.02 50� 31.16 60� 24.55 70� 15.95 ...read more.

    4 star(s)

    Measure out 30ml of hydrochloric acid. 6. Add it quickly to the conical flask, closing the stopper straight away and starting the stopwatch immediately. 7. Every 5/10 seconds, record the amount of gas that has built up in the syringe; until it reaches 100, at which we stop the experiment.

    I.e. the molecule doesn't want to loose an electron. Due to the intermolecular forces it keeps the electron and hydrogen molecule very close forming the larger activation energy for the removal of the hydrogen. Phosphoric acid has the highest activation energy, this is because the phosphate molecule pulling equally on the oxygen molecules that are intern pulling on the hydrogen atoms, this molecule is intermoleculally very stable.

    Then, we put 10 cm3 of hydrochloric acid in a conical flask (measuring the HCL with a small meniscus), and then put the conical flask on the black cross on the paper. We then added 50 cm3 of sodium thiosulphate to the hydrochloric acid, and at this time we do not need to add any water.
