How does a change in the pH value of a solution of hydrochloric acid (HCl(aq)), affect how much zinc metal is reacted with the hydrochloric acid in a one minute time frame (rate of reaction), if the zinc metal is kept as the excess reactant across all variations in pH of the hydrochloric acid solution.
If the pH of a solution containing hydrochloric acid (HCl(aq)) is decreased by increasing the concentration of the hydrochloric acid, then the amount of zinc metal that is reacted by the hydrochloric acid solution should increase since, controlling all other variables, an increase in the concentration of reactants results in an increase in the rate of reaction.
The independent variable in this investigation is the pH of the solution of hydrochloric acid.
I will change the pH of the solution by increasing/decreasing the concentration of hydrochloric acid in the solution, through dilution of a stock solution of a 12 mol dm-3 hydrochloric acid solution during the investigation. I will use the following variations of hydrochloric acid, aware of the fact that it is monoprotic:
Concentration of HCl(aq) in solution
