The majority of the failure is from the volume result. From Avogrado's law we know that. As such, because the average volume (0.051 L) was low, the mol resulting from it is also low. A small mol results in a large Mr value, or in our case the Mr of Oxygen is too high. -Another point to that is that if the experiment was assuming r.t.p, our results prove to be incorrect again. If we compared the mol, the actual mol results of andusing the ideal gas laws is different than if we calculated using normal Stoichiometry. From Stoichiometry, the actual mol of is, and if we compared it to a ratio of 2:2, the actual mol value of is also 0.138 mol. ...read more.


OR the second conclusion is that our group did not wait long enough and thus lost some potential volume results. -To evaluate, the major flaw to the experiment was the value of the data collected. Part of the reason was because we used Vaseline as a tool to reduce the amount of energy (in the form of the Oxygen gas) to the surroundings. Vaseline is a good measure to do so, however a better alternative is probably to increase the number of trials, to have a more close system that may significantly reduce the uncertainties, and to maybe reduce the length of rubber tube (by reducing the length of rubber tube the amount of water left is reduced). ...read more.

    However to ascertain this I still should have conducted my experiment using more variables. Conclusion: My aim for this experiment was to investigate how the mass of catalyst used would affect the rate of the catalysed decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.

  2. Can one determine the coefficients of a balanced chemical equation by having the mass ...

    because there were a lot of errors encountered throughout the experiment that changed the value of the coefficients. In addition there is a percentage error of approximately 3% for the coefficient of copper. This is a very large error and this could very well indicate that the mass of the coefficient going on the copper could be far off.

    Therefore, insufficient amount of acid affects the volume of potassium permanganate to decrease to reach the end point. In the second titration, dealing with hydrogen peroxide, sulfuric acid and potassium permanganate, the solution of hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid was to be heated.

  2. Dissolved Oxygen in water

    An azide is present to prevent any nitrate ions from interfering with the test. On addition of acid, manganese oxide hydroxide oxidizes the iodide to iodine (Step 2). Since the amount of iodine generate is equivalent to the oxygen in the sample the concentration of iodine is calculated by titration

    per (other units), this will make stoichiometry significantly easier. Moles To mass Calculating the mass of a sample from the number of moles it contains is quite simple. We use the molar mass (mass of one mole) of the substance to convert between mass and moles. When writing calculations, we denote the molar mass of a substance by an upper case "M" (e.g.
