To investigate how the concentration of hydrochloric acid affect the speed of reaction with marble chips.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Marble chips Experiment. Pilot Aim: To investigate how the concentration of hydrochloric acid affect the speed of reaction with marble chips. Prediction: I predict that the more hydrochloric acid there is the faster the chemical reaction. I also predict that the more dilute the acid is (the more water there is with the acid) the slower the chemical reaction. Hypothesis: I predicted what I did because the more concentrated the hydrochloric acid is the more energy there will be and so therefore the more collisions there will be. More collisions occur when there are more acid particles. It is the acid particles that create the collisions and it is the collisions that lead to the reaction. In a dilute acid or a mixture of more water than acid, there will be a slower reaction because there are less acid particles. ...read more.

In this case I will time how long it takes for the water to reach the '50 ml' mark. If I keep the same stop point at '50 ml', I will be able to recognise the affects on the speed of reaction with the different concentrations. Fair Test: I will keep the same overall amounts of mixture of hydrochloric acid and water in the conical flask. The amount of mixture will be 30 ml. I will use the same stop point which shall be at 50 ml. I will keep the same mass of marble chips, which will be 10g and the surface area of the marble chips. I will carefully wash out the equipment and apparatus to prevent contamination of the apparatus and keep the temperature in which I will be experimenting in at room temperature, around 25 degrees Celsius. Apparatus: Conical Flasks. Measuring cylinders. A large bowl. *Bee hive.* Tap water. Bung with tube. ...read more.

Conclusion

7. Add the 10g of marble chips. 8. Then place the bung on top of the conical flask to stop gas escaping. 9. Start the clock immediately! 10. When the water in the measuring cylinder falls to the 50 ml mark, stop the clock. 11. Record the time in a results table similar t the one below. 12. now repeat the steps for 25ml HCl:5ml water 13. Repeat for 20ml HCl:10ml water 14. Repeat for 15ml HCl:15ml water 15. And repeat for 10ml HCl:20ml water 16. Repeat all the above steps twice more so by the end of this experiment you should have three results for all 5 measurements.

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

    Mg (s) + 2HCl (aq) MgCl2 (aq) + H2 (g) I set up the experiment using the right equipment. During my experiment, I found out the following things; * I can measure how quickly the magnesium disappears in the hydrochloric acid * I can also measure how much product is formed (the hydrogen gas given off)

  2. Investigating the effect of concentration on the rateof reaction between marble chips and Hydrochloric ...

    I will be collecting the gas using a measuring cylinder that has been upturned in a margarine tub between 1/2 and 3/4 full of water. Fair Tests To make this investigation fair, I will be using the same amount of marble chips, and will ensure that they have roughly the same surface area.

  1. Experiment to see how the quantity of marble chips affects the rate of reaction ...

    In the preliminary experiments we found that the small marble chips reacted well with a 0.5M solution of hydrochloric acid and water, so we felt it unnecessary to use the 2M solution of hydrochloric acid and water. It already had enough activation energy, so we didn't need 2M acid.

  2. Determine the concentration of lime water.

    I will be provided with 250cm3 of limewater, which has been made to which contains approximately 1g/dm3 of calcium Hydroxide. We were also give Hydrochloric acid (HCl) with a concentration of 2.00 mol/dm3 normal laboratory apparatus was also given and so was an indicator.

    However, if I don't manage to complete all the readings in one lesson (which I probably wont), I will need to carry out the other readings at a later date and the temperature of the room may be different then.

  2. Find out what changes the speed of the reaction between marble chips and acid.

    I will do a preliminary experiment, before I do the real experiment. It is useful to do a preliminary experiment because it shows you where you have gone wrong, so you can correct any mistakes before doing the real experiment.

  1. To find the effects of the concentration of hydrochloric acid on the rate of ...

    Put the marble chips into the conical flask, then at the same time put the water and acid solution into the conical flask and start the stopwatch. Immediately after putting the water and acid solution into the conical flask put the bung in covering the top.

  2. An investigation into how changing one variable influences the rate of reaction between marble ...

    This is done by washing the chips in hydrochloric acid and then rinsing them in water to stop them reacting. I then kept my cleaned chips separate from the others that were not cleaned to avoid any dust or power being transferred onto the clean chips.
