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 ?? ?? ?? ??

    Thus, this means that there would be large uncertainties in my data. To solve this problem, I should have used something else as my dependent variable, something else which is easier to determine. I could have set a fixed time for the reaction and measured the mass of content remaining

    The rules from error propagation was used to find the uncertainties. This is a good method to finding the uncertainties as it accounts for every possible error when adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. The errors of values must increase as they become manipulated.

    Although the first result is less accurate, it has a higher precision than the second, more accurate one. The random uncertainty of the first is only , while the second has a relatively high random uncertainty of . The great difference between random uncertainties owes to difference in percentage errors of the mole of hydrogen gas produced.

    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.
