    (Sciencelab, 2010) This is an important factor to control because the solution of 1.00 mol dm-3 KOH(aq) that is prepared ahead of time, before the investigation is conducted, will absorb moisture from the atmosphere. This means that the volume of the solution will increase and therefore, its concentration decreased the longer it is exposed to the atmosphere.

    In this experiment the base was NaOH and the acid HCl. The experiment goes on to test the specific heat of NaCl in a similar manner as that of the metal cylinder. Methods To make the calorimeter, two Styrofoam cups are placed together.

    Normally, the concentration of reactants would be less, as they are not in a concentrated area. This would then cause a lower temperature increase because there is a smaller chance the particles will collide. As a result, the change in enthalpy in a normal situation would be much lower than if the reactants were all concentrated in one area.

    The temperature for each indicator that was used was not consistent throughout the lab. This is because the temperature of the room changed throughout experimentation. The door in the classroom was open to get rid of the stench from a lab done in the previous class.
