  1. Investigate the rate of reaction of luminol in various factors. The objective was to ...

    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.

    Having only two points on a graph is very inaccurate and imprecise. This is because if for some reason a random error occurred during the procedure, than it would be impossible to tell, as there are no other points to compare with.

  2. 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).

    Identifying one group member to handle and use the stopwatch before the experiment and then ensuring that he only handles it during each trial will control this variable. It is vital to reduce the impact human error and keep the experiment as accurate as possible.
