4. From your graph calculate a constant of proportionality between the two variables (the gradient). Gradient = y2 - y1 / x2 - x 1 = 25.296 - 74.035 / 0.001 - 0.004 = 16246.33 5. Determine the equation that relates that variables using the constant of proportionality determine in 4. The equation of the line: y = mx + c Where; y = volume of hydrogen and x = moles of hydrogen Therefore ; y = 16246.33x + 5.119 Table 1.2 - Quantitative observation produced during the experiment Observations 1. When the magnesium was attached to the copper and put into the hydrochloric acid there were no bubbles present at first, however, when the tube was flipped upside down tiny bubbles could be seen floating up. (less bubbles) 2. At the start of the experiment, only small bubbles could be seen closer to the magnesium than anywhere else 3. As soon as the acid reached the bottom of the flipped tube there were more bubbles present and lots of tiny bubbles filled the tube 4. ...read more.


The volume you measured under the laboratory conditions must be changed. Use the combined gas law to calculate the volume the hydrogen would occupy under STP condition. Combine gas law : P1V1 / T1 = P2V2 / T2 Where ; P1 = 100.5 kPa T1 = 292.3 K V1 = 49.0 cm3 V2 = ? Therefore the volume of hydrogen is; 100.5 x 49 / 292.3 = 101.3V / 273 16.8 = 101.3V / 273 4586.4 = 101.3V V = 45.4 cm3 �0.20 4. Write a balanced equation for the reaction of magnesium with hydrochloric acid. From the equation determine the number of moles of hydrogen that can be formed from the moles of magnesium in each experiment. Mg + 2HCl = H2 + MgCl2 Moles of magnesium = 0.003mol Moles of hydrogen = 1 x 0.003 mol = 0.003 mol � 0.001g Where error of moles of magnesium = � 0.001g ?? ?? ?? ??

    Despite this fact, the trend of the experimental results were still found to be linear when graphed with molar mass vs. the molar heat of combustion as the errors remained consistent. The graph of the accepted values support that it is a linear trend.

    Other than that, the experiment was performed well. It was made sure that none or very little air was left in the collection flask when turning it around and placing it in the water filled container. There were a few tiny air bubbles on the walls; however, the air in the reaction flask was more likely to influence the result.

    While the magnesium was in the HCl it bubbled, which floated vertically to the top of the gas collecting tube. When the magnesium was first added it reacted rapidly producing bubbles at a quick rate, but as the experiment went on, the speed and bubbles became more gradual and slower

    Observe what happens with the hydrochloric acid and magnesium after a little while. When the reaction is complete wait at least 5 minutes so that the eudiometer reaches room temperature. 6. Arrange the eudiometer in the cylinder so that the gas into the eudiometer has the same pressure as the air pressure in the room.
