    The line goes from the highest concentration to the origin (0,0). It is because there is no reaction for 0% of luminol. The straight line means the reaction is zero order with respect to luminol. Rate = k [luminol]0 Rate = k Retrieving rate = k, means concentration of luminol has no effect on this reaction.

  1. DCP+CE Analysis of a Hydrogen Peroxide Solution

    acid in the solution reduces the permanganate ions to MnO2 instead of Mn2+, changes the molar ratio in both of the titrations. Insufficient amount of acid will affect the volume of potassium permanganate to reach the end point. Since the acid is the limiting agent, the amount of potassium permanganate to react with the acid will be less.

    Temperature Will conduct the experiment at the same condition Higher the temperature, the faster the enzymatic reaction.

  1. The effect of catalase on hydrogen peroxide

    And the catalase was also in high amounts which made the reaction fast. The reaction of catalase in the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide is: 2H2O2 2H2O +O2 (seen as bubbles) The third test tube with raw potato formed less bubbles and reaction slower because there was less catalase compared to the first two items (yeast and liver).

    The fizzing sound that the reaction was creating was because of the chemical bonding taking place between the metal and acid. The fizzing was also visible to the eye, as when the magnesium was added to the reaction in the test tube, it combined with the H2SO4 and produced bubbles.
