How does the change in temperature affect the rate of reaction?

Extracts from this document...


Temperature affecting Reaction Rates * Guiding Question: How does the change in temperature affect the rate of reaction? * Objectives: The objective of this experiment is to see how temperature affects reaction rates. * Hypothesis: We think that temperature increases the rate of reaction because the increase in temperature increases the energy of the particles and therefore overcomes faster the activation energy. * Variables: 1. Independent: Temperature (�C) 2. Dependents: Time (s) and rate of reaction (s -1) 3. Control: Volume (ml) and concentration (M) of HCl and Na2S2O3. * Procedure: a) ...read more.

Some problems during the experiment were that we just have one hot plate so we loose time waiting for the other team to finish with their results. It was complicated because we couldn't have enough space to record everything that was happening because there were two groups per table. A solution to this problem is that for that specific part when we need the hot plates, we can share the data obtained in the whole table members. So we can continued the experiment at a faster rate so we can start doing more researches for the conclusion. And in this way the observations would have been more accuracy for both groups. ...read more.

  1. How duration affects the rate of electrolysis in a Voltaic Cell

    On the other hand, copper undergoes reduction at the cathode and the copper 2+ ions get converted to copper metal. This causes the copper metal to be deposited at the cathode thus leading to the copper electrode (cathode) to increase in mass as the duration is increased.

  2. Factors Affecting Rate of Reaction

    When the surface area of the tablet was increased by crushing it into a powder, the rate of reaction decreased 5 times. These results do not make sense since according to the collision model, a solid in a solution can only react when particles collide with the surface.

    For the first solution, we apply the equation, and thus we do: (10.0cm³/50.0cm³)*0.2 ï 0.04M. As for the uncertainty here, we must add the fractional uncertainty in the volume of sodium sulfate and total volume, and then multiply it by the concentration.
