Title: Experiment on Quantitative Determination of KspDate the Experiment was performed:Name:Partner's Name:Pre-lab: Determination of KspExperimental purposeThe solubility of chemical substances in water often varies greatly depending on their chemical structure and the prevailing temperatures. Due to these differences, the level of solubility can range between being very soluble and insoluble. The solubility of the presumably insoluble substances can be expressed in terms of a constant referred to as Solubility Product Constant (Ksp). In this experiment, Le Chatelier's Principle will be reinforced through exposure of solubility equilibria to chemical perturbations.Aims and Objectives of studyTo establish dissolution constant for precipitates upon addition of chemical reagentsDemonstrate application of LeChaletier's Principle in calculating the concentration of all species at equilibrium.Laboratory conceptsAccording to Le Chatelier's Principle (1888): If a system at equilibrium is disturbed by a change in temperature, pressure, or the concentration of one of the components, the system will shift its equilibrium position so as to counteract the effect of the disturbance. Similarly, the common ion effect concept spells out that addition of an ion from 2 sources pushes the reaction of interest towards the second change from the initial starting conditions and via Le Chatelier's principle, shifts the reaction.Solubility equilibrium Ksp or Solubility Product, common in most precipitation reactions rely on concepts that can mathematically be expressed in equation as follows:PbF2(s) ((( Pb2+ (aq) + 2F- (aq)Ksp = [Pb2+] [F-]2In this experiment, factors affecting solubility of sparingly soluble salts will be investigated. The experiment is important because salt dissolution helps in increasing ion concentration in solutions, thus affecting the chemical properties of the same solution. Similarly, solubility of salts is affected by temperature and other chemical reagents such as bases, acids, and complexing agents which influence the Ksp of the salt. This experiment will investigate the two factors using set to probe the latter factor.Table for Observation and ResultsExpected reactionsPb2+(aq) + 2Cl-(aq) (( PbCl2(s); white ppt.PbCl2(s) +...

Experiment on the Decomposition of a Carbonate

628 words - 3 pages AIM: To carry out a lab experiment to decompose a carbonate using heat, also to carry out appropriate tests for the formation of products as a result of this decomposition.DISSCUSION: Carbonates are decomposed by heat into the corresponding oxides and carbon dioxide. The temperature of decomposition depends upon the activity of the metal; that is to say, the more active the metal, the more stable is the carbonate. Thus, the carbonates of sodium

Effects of Salted Liver on Planaria (Zoology Experiment)

783 words - 3 pages ) This study tests the sensory and response of planaria. Although this simulation is not what these animals would encounter in nature, it will give us a general idea of their sensitivity and behavior that is common in the wild. My hypothesis is planarian will be more likely to move toward the salted liver if given a choice between salted and unsalted liver.Methods For this experiment I used starved, live planaria that were on average

Biology: Experiment- The Effect of Temperature on the Enzyme Rennin

1890 words - 8 pages Aim: The aim of the experiment is to test the effect temperature has on the activity of the enzyme rennin.Hypothesis: I believe the rate of reaction will speed up as the temperature increases until it reaches about 37oC, which is the body temperature, where it will begin to slow down and stop reacting. I believe this will occur because enzymes have a temperature range at which they work best in and once the temperature goes out of this range the

EXPERIMENT: Effect of Dissolved Carbon Dioxide on the pH of water

1686 words - 7 pages huge impact on water as the water's pH decreases rapidly. Also, after comparing the results of my experiment to others, it seems that in all experiments carbon dioxide lowers the pH, which once again proves the point that Carbon Dioxide does indeed lower the pH of water. This point is evident in all 3 trials conducted. However, there was a slight difference in the results, since many used distilled water, whereas I used tap water for my

Research Experiment Examining the Effect of Caffeine on the Heart Rate of Water Fleas

819 words - 3 pages tell if any of my results are anomalous, meaning that the average of my results is not taking lots of repeats into account and may be seriously influenced by an unnoticed anomalous result. If I were to carry out this experiment I would try to ensure I would have more time and I would try to work quicker, as I would know better what I was doing. This is because I did not have enough time to test all the different caffeine strengths I wanted to, or to carry out enough repeats. Each repeat took so long as many of the fleas we were to test on were already dead, so it was very hard to find a living one to test on.
