Measuring the amount of Hydrochloric Acid Measuring and cutting of Magnesium strips. Magnesium strips broken into pieces. Not taking the measurement of the volume of Hydrogen gas correctly due to parallax error. Uncertainties within Experiment: Measuring Cylinder � 0.05mL Gas measuring tube � 0.1mL Thermometer � 0.05�C Barometer � 0.05Kpa Ruler � 0.1mm 1. Calculate the mass and number of moles of magnesium used in your experiment. Number of moles used = mass of mg used (g) gram formula mass of mg (g/mol) = 0.021�0.1g 24.31 = 0.0008638 = 8.64 x 10 -4 � 0.1g 8.64 x 10 -4 � 0.1g moles of Magnesium was used. Calculate the number of moles of Hydrochloric acid. Moles of HCl = ( 8.64 x 10 -4) x 2 = 17.28 x 10 -4 = 1.73 x 10-3 � 0.2 2. From the partial pressure of water supplied calculate the partial pressure of Hydrogen using the formula.

Conclusion

Moles of hydrogen used against the volume of hydrogen produced. Moles of hydrogen against the volume of hydrogen produced, with a trend line and equation of the graph. 2. Describe the relationship between the two variables and indicate any proportionality that exists. The amount of Hydrogen gas that was produced is generally proportional to that of the moles used in the reaction. Although one point on the graph that is not proportional, this is most likely due to an error. Analysis Section: 3. From the graph determine the volume of hydrogen when the number of moles of hydrogen produced is 1.2 x 10-3 mol. Approximately 25.0cm3 of Hydrogen gas would be produced when the moles of hydrogen is 1.2 x 10-3. 4. From your graph calculate a constant of proportionality between the two variables (the gradient). Points: A (0.00129, 27.4) B (0.00172, 36.3) Gradient 1 = y2-y1 x2-x1 = 36.3 - 27.4 0.00172 - 0.00129 = 8.9 0.00043 = 20697.7cm3 = 20.7 dm3 Points: A (0.00344, 67.8) B (0.00387, 79.1) Gradient2 = y2-y1 x2-x1 = 79.1 - 67.8 0.00387 - 0.00344 = 11.3 0.00043 = 26279.07 cm3 = 26.3dm3 Average = 10.1 0.00043 = 23488.4 cm3 = 23.5 dm3 ?? ?? ?? ??

    For instance, when considering steel we can see how this alloy is stronger than its primary element, iron (Fe). Even though physical properties, such as density, reactivity, electrical and thermal conductivity, of the alloy does not differ inn great amount from those of its constituent elements, engineering properties such as tensile strength and shear strength can differ considerably.

    This would have allowed further investigation about the volume of hydrogen in the flask. Also, the exact volume of the reaction flask was not measured. It was only stated by eye that the flasks looked to be the same size.

    When the hydrochloric acid reached the magnesium ribbon, the reaction began. Hydrogen gas was formed pushing water out of the eudiometer through the rubber stopper hole into the measuring cylinder. After the reaction stopped, it was left for 5 minutes so that the eudiometer reaches room temperature.

    The actual mass of magnesium took part in the reaction is smaller than the measurement value of magnesium mass. However, the slightly larger, inaccurate measurement value is still used in the calculation. So the calculated mole of hydrogen gas produced is bigger than the actual value.

    However in this year, the duration of ozone hole was shortest since 1988. In 2003, there was again ozone depletion of over 40% over Antarctica. This monitoring of yearly changes of ozone concentrations in the stratosphere suggest that ozone levels are decreasing at a rapid rate and that the ozone hole has been increasing in area.
