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

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

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.

Conclusion

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.

    This variable is controlled because 10.0ml of hydrochloric acid 2.00 M is measured by the burette. In addition, the funnels should be removed from the burette after pouring solutions to make sure no air bubble inside the burette. If present, they may lead to inaccuracies while reading the volumes.

  2. Factors Affecting Rate of Reaction

    The bigger the area of the solid surface, the more particles can collide with it per second, and the faster the reaction rate is. During the experiment, when the crushed tablet was poured in the water, the lid was not put on firmly, leaving a space for air to escape the canister.

    The control variables (the variables kept the same): The other variables, which we need to keep constant, are: * The volume of H2SO4 being added to each reaction. This will be kept constant throughout the investigation by accurately measuring 10mL of H2SO4 solution for each trial in a measuring cylinder.

    Observations: 1. We stirred all solutions. 2. There is a small delay between when we started the stop watch and poured the HCl, as it is impossible to perfectly coordinate this. 3. Bad smell released. 4. The stirring speed was not the same for each reaction, though it was attempted to be replicated equally for each reaction.
