How does the change in temperature affect the rate of reaction?

Extracts from this document...


Temperature affecting Reaction Rates * Guiding Question: How does the change in temperature affect the rate of reaction? * Objectives: The objective of this experiment is to see how temperature affects reaction rates. * Hypothesis: We think that temperature increases the rate of reaction because the increase in temperature increases the energy of the particles and therefore overcomes faster the activation energy. * Variables: 1. Independent: Temperature (�C) 2. Dependents: Time (s) and rate of reaction (s -1) 3. Control: Volume (ml) and concentration (M) of HCl and Na2S2O3. * Procedure: a) ...read more.


f) Repeat the experiment twice for each temperature and find the average. * Materials: i. 2 measuring cylinder (50 ml) ii. Thermometer 10 �C - 110 �C iii. Chronometer iv. 2 flasks (250 mL) v. 60 ml of a 2M solution of HCl vi. 600 ml of a 0.04 M solution of Na2S2O3 * Observation: Sodium Thiosulfate ions (0.04 M) with different temperatures �C mL HCL (2M) Time to disappear of "X" (s) Average Time (s) Rate of Reaction n (s-1) 18.5 5 243 255 249 0.00401 30 5 60 46 53 0.01886 40 5 28.62 25.04 26.83 0.03727 50 5 24.38 22.46 23.42 0.04269 60 5 10.87 14 12.44 0.08038 * ...read more.


Some problems during the experiment were that we just have one hot plate so we loose time waiting for the other team to finish with their results. It was complicated because we couldn't have enough space to record everything that was happening because there were two groups per table. A solution to this problem is that for that specific part when we need the hot plates, we can share the data obtained in the whole table members. So we can continued the experiment at a faster rate so we can start doing more researches for the conclusion. And in this way the observations would have been more accuracy for both groups. ...read more.

  1. How duration affects the rate of electrolysis in a Voltaic Cell

    On the other hand, copper undergoes reduction at the cathode and the copper 2+ ions get converted to copper metal. This causes the copper metal to be deposited at the cathode thus leading to the copper electrode (cathode) to increase in mass as the duration is increased.

    * Weaknesses: * Several inevitable uncertainties occur throughout the whole experiment which may account for inaccuracies in the collected data. * The chosen value Na2S2O3 0.02 M and 0.03 M eventually result a much longer the mean time taken for the cross to disappear (259 � 0.5 seconds and 142 � 0.5 seconds, respectively)

    the equation can be converted into: Qcalorimeter=Q warm water-Q cold water =4.9kJ-3.8kJ =1.1kJ Absolute uncertainty=�0.3kJ + �0.3kJ=�0.6 kJ % uncertainty=0.6/1.1 � 100%=54% 4. The calorimeter constant Qcalorimeter can be written as: Qcalorimeter=Ccalorimeter�?T In which ?T is the temperature change undergone by the calorimeter(the ?T of cold water), and Ccalorimeter is

    Research Question Will increasing the temperature (�C) of the rennin enzyme affect the rate of reaction (seconds) at which Pauls full cream milk solidifies? Hypothesis It is hypothesised that increasing the temperature of the rennin enzyme will increase the rate of the reaction at which Pauls full cream milk solidifies.

  2. Factors Affecting Rate of Reaction

    When the surface area of the tablet was increased by crushing it into a powder, the rate of reaction decreased 5 times. These results do not make sense since according to the collision model, a solid in a solution can only react when particles collide with the surface.

    The uncertainty given by the last figure on the stop watch was very inaccurate to use, therefore we calculated the reaction time instead to give a more true uncertainty. However this value has a range, so it is not necessarily accurate.
