    Use a pipette. Wash hands with cold water if lime water comes into contact with skin. It?s harmful. Can cause itchiness and pain. Wear goggles and take care when using it. If there is a spillage tell the teacher immediately. When not using the Bunsen burner use yellow safety flame. Don?t keep the boiling tubes on a blue flame for longer than 2 minutes as could break due to prolonged heat. Tie long hair up out of place to stop getting caught in flame Always follow lab rules.

    - Calcium Carbonate Powder (5g) - Hydrochloric Acid 1M (100ml) - Spatula - Accurate Scale - Stopwatch Method: 1. Collect all of the equipment and measure 5g of each size of surface area of Calcium Carbonate with a spatula. 2. Collect 100 ml of Hydrochloric Acid into one of the 400ml beakers. 3. Place the other beaker on the scale and then set the scale measure to zero. Pour the 100ml of HCl into the beaker on the scale. 4. Hold a stopwatch in one hand, and place the large CaCO3 chips into the beaker containing HCl. Start the stopwatch as soon as the chips contact with the surface of the acid.

    The effects of surface area: The effects of concentration: The effects of temperature: 2mph 25mph In order to calculate the rate of reaction I will use this formula: 1 Average time When sodium thiosulphate solution reacts with hydrochloric acid a solid is formed. The time taken for a certain amount of sulphur to form can be used to indicate the rate of reaction. In this experiment the effects of the concentration of the sodium thiosulphate on the rate of reaction is investigated.

    We did this by measuring out the same volume of acid and add it to a measuring cylinder. We used 20 ml of acid. And we used the same weight of marble chips. But had them in three different sizes, Powdered, Large Chips and small chips. KEY 2Hcl + CaCo3 CaCl2+H2o+Co2 aq : aquaris (aq) (s) (aq) (l) (g) S: solid l: Liquid g: Gas We poured the acid into the measuring cylinder and got the stop watch ready and the right weight of marble set.

    rates of reaction

    Lastly a catalyst is a chemical what we add what will increase the surface area, so there is more chance of collisions to take place, at the end of the reaction the catalyst can be removed. The reaction of the collision theory: Sodium thiosulphate+hydrochloric acid sodium chloride+ sulphur dioxide + water +sulphur My prediction I predict that as I increase the concentration of the sodium thiosulphate the rate of reaction will increase. This is because the number of particles will increase meaning more chance of collision further resulting in the rate of reaction to increase.

    displacement reactions of metal

    4 star(s)

    Iron will displace copper only as it is a less reactive metal. And copper will not be able to displace any metals because it is a very weak metal. * Method 1. I had placed the three pieces of the four different metals on a tile containing twelve holes. 2. Then I added the aqueous solution that is magnesium solution, iron solution, zinc solution & copper solution onto the different metals.

    rate of reaction

    3 star(s)

    A reaction which is over in a fraction of a second is a very fast reaction. We say it has a high rate of reaction. As the time taken for the reaction to be completed increases, the rate of reaction decreases. What factors affect the rate of reaction? The effect of increasing concentration on the rate of reaction is relatively easy to predict qualitatively. It is not possible to be sure of a quantitive relationship without carrying out experimental studies.

    Who's cheating on the vinegar?

    3 star(s)

    I will do this by using a technique called Titration. Vinegar is ethonoic acid What is Titration? Titration is a form of neutralisation. This is a process of determining the concentration of a substance in solution. A measured amount of a known solution concentration (molarity) is added to an unknown volume of a second solution in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed. Neutralisation is when a Hydrogen ion and a Hydroxide ion react together to form water which is neutral. + - H (aq) + OH (aq) � H2O Variables: * Amount of acid (vinegar)

    In this exercise, it was required to observe carefully what happened when certain substances were heated in a burner, and to note the appearance of the residue after heating.

    Distilled water was used to dampen the red and blue litmus paper. Using the flame of the Bunsen burner the splint was lit and then blown out leaving a glowing splint. The tongs was used to hold the test tube over the lit Bunsen burner and the blue and red litmus paper was held at the opening of the test tube. The glowing splint was then placed inside test tube.

  18. The Rise and fall of the Iron and Steel Industry in Great Britain

    These areas contained plenty of woodlands to provide the charcoal needed in the smelting process. But the charcoal was running out, and half of Britain's iron had to be imported from Sweden and Russia. The steel industry, which used Benjamin Huntsman's "crucible" process, was also small-scale and centred on Sheffield. During the 18th century, there was a revolution in the production of iron, and in the 19th century, a revolution in the production of steel. During this time: The growth of the iron and steel industry involved Technological innovation. As well as Large-scale production, centred on famous ironmasters.

  19. The experiment which I carried out aimed to monitor the quantity of Copper (Cu) metal that deposited during the electrolysis of Copper Sulphate solution (CuSo4) using Copper electrodes, when certain variables were changed.

    was poured into a small beaker. The two copper electrodes were firstly cleaned using water. Then electrodes were weighed, their masses recorded and placed into the beaker containing the Copper Sulphate solution. The electrodes were connected to a battery set (cell) and ammeter. A current flowed (0.2 Amps) and the experiment was stopped at certain points (after each minute) to record the results. At the end of the experiment (when all the results were obtained)

  22. Changing the rate of a reaction by changing the concentration:

    * Using a measuring cylinder, measure out 25ml of sodium thiosulphate and pour that into the conical flask and put on top of the paper. The cross should be easy to see through the solution, from above. * 40ml of hydrochloric acid is added quickly, and a clock started at the same time. The cross grows fainter as the precipitate forms.

    This increased rate of reaction would then cause the time taken for the cross to disappear to decrease. From my results and my analysis above you can see clearly that as concentration increases so does the rate and the recorded time of the reaction falls. I feel that my analysis of the results and the trend shown by the graph clearly shows that in my investigation the predictions that rate increases with concentration and rate doubles upon concentration doubling are fully supported.

  24. How useful are sources F, G and H as evidence of conditions in the Hertford Gaol in the first half of the nineteenth century?

    Source F talks about some of the punishments which the prisoners got for rule breaking in the Hertford Gaol. The examples which the source gives are punishments such as; a one day bread diet for laughing and or two days in solitary for making signs at another prisoner. This gives us a good idea about how rule breaking was dealt with. We also know that this source is reliable because it is an extract from a Governor's diary so it is very likely to be true, and what

Read each thermometer until the water in beaker B reaches 37�C and the water in beaker C reaches 100�C (i.e. when the water boils). At these points, remove the beakers from the hot plate and switch off the power. 6. Wait a few minutes and check the thermometers until the test tube temperatures are constant, and similar to the temperature of the water bath.
