An Investigation Into The Volume Of Gas Produced When You React Hydrochloric Acid And Marble Chips Plan, Evaluation And Analysis

1662 words - 7 pages

Plan.In my investigation I will be investigating how changes in acid concentration (moles) effect the rate of reaction with marble chips. I will measure the rate of reaction by measuring the gas produced when the reaction occurs. My variable will be acid concentration , and I will keep every other aspect of my experiment the same. (Volume of acid, conical flask used, volume of water in collection basin.) This will ensure fair and accurate testing. Before I conducted my experiment I need to decide which size marble chips to use. We have 3 varieties: small (2-6mm) medium (6-9mm) and large (9-12mm). So I conducted a preliminary investigation to perfect my method, check for flaws and see which chips created the least amount of problems. However before I conducted preliminary or actual work I needed to calculate how many marble chips to use (grams) I used the following calculation:CaCO3 + 2HCL CaCl + CO2 +H20? 50mlThe calculation above is the symbol equation for the reaction that take place in my experiment.I calculated the mass of CaCO3 in three steps:1. moles: moles = concentration X cm00: 2 X 501000= 0.1 moles/dm Ratio: 1CaCO3 : 2 HCL0.05 : 0.13. Mass : (mass = moles X Mr)0.05 X 100 =5gTherefore 50ml of Hydrochloric acid dissolves 5g抯 of calcium carbonate. However to maximize gas production we used an excess of marble chips. So the weight of chips weused for both my preliminary work and my real experiment was 5.5g抯.So I used 50ml of 2 molar/dm hydrochloric acid and 5.5g抯 of marble chips in my preliminary investigation. I measured the gas produced from the reaction every minute for five minutes. These were my results:Size (mm).1 min.2 min.3 min.4 min.5 min.Small (2-6)97 ml132 ml205 ml239 ml315 mlMedium (6-9)70 ml118 ml180 ml216 ml273 mlLarge (9-12)45 ml100 ml152 ml200 ml249 mlI decided to use large marble chips (9-12mm) as the small and medium chips reacted much faster producing much more gas thanks to their large surface area. The amounts of gas produced by the small and medium samples of marble chips was so great it required us to change measuring cylinders half way through the experiment. With large marble chips less gas is produced saving me the inaccuracy of changing measuring cylinders.To conduct my actual experiment I will follow the following plan:-稦irst I made five different concentrations of hydrochloric acid. (2 moles/dm, 1.6 moles/dm, 1.2 moles/dm, 0.8 moles/dm, 0.4 moles/dm.) They all were 50ml in volume.稩 then weighted out 5 lots of 5.5g抯 of marble chips to 2d.p of accuracy. We then put them together with their adjourning sample in a air tight conical flask.稩 immediately started my stop clock. My conical flask had a air tight hose running into a upside measuring cylinder full of water. As my experiment produced gas it ejected the water from the measuring cylinder giving me a gas reading. I took readings of the gas levels every minute for five minutes.稩 repeated every concentration...

An investigation to see how Hydrochloric acid reacts with Magnesium to produce Hydrogen gas

2033 words - 8 pages The aim of the investigation is to see how different concentrations of Hydrochloric acid affect the rate at which hydrogen gas is produced when it is reacted with a strip of magnesium.The rate of a reaction is a measure of change that happens in a single unit of time. When a chemical reaction takes place the particles of the reactants collide. The more often the particles collide the more likely they are to react and so the faster the reaction

Background: Vitamin C or ascorbate is an essential nutrient for almost all-biological life. Vitamin C acts as a powerful anti-oxidant that essentially deters the oxidation of other substances by oxidizing itself. Free radicals that pose a threat to cells when present in excess in the human body are usually consumed by vitamin C to deter the

Chemistry, the effects of acid rain includes experiment with marble chips

546 words - 2 pages increased. This can be justified by relating to the collision theory. When the temperature is increased the particles will have more energy and thus move faster. Therefore they will collide more often and with more energy. Particles with more energy are more likely to overcome the activation energy barrier to reaction and thus react successfully. If solutions of reacting particles are made more concentrated there are more particles per unit volume

From my preliminary experiment I have decided to use 50cm3 of acid, as in doing so the reaction will not occur too slowly.· Molarity of acid is very important as if an acid with higher molarity is used there will be more acid particles to react with the limestone surface and so there will be more chance of collision, in this way increasing the rate of reaction. This will be my
