Identifying Rates of Reactions with Different Factors

Objective:

To test what factors can significantly affect the efficiency of a reaction.

Reactions for the lab:

(part 1/2) = Mg + 2HCl → MgCl2 + H2

(part 3) = CaCO3 + 2HCl → CaCl2 + H2O + CO2

(part 4) = 10FeSO4 + 2KMnO4 + 8H2SO4 → 5Fe2(SO4)3 + 2MnSO4 + K2SO4 + 8H2O

2KMnO4 + 5Na2C2O4 + 8H2SO4 → K2SO4 + 2MnSO4 + 5Na2SO4 + 8H2O + 10C02

(part 5) = the sodium oxalate reaction plus MnSO4

Analysis:

Part 1

Our first experiment was to compare different concentrations of hydrochloric acid and determine the rate of reaction. We dropped four pieces of magnesium which weighed 0.015 grams each into four different flasks which contained the same solution. The only difference was the molarity in each solution. The first flask had 0.5M, the second had 1.0M, the third had 3.0M and the fourth had 6.0M. Our reaction rates were 2.917*10^-5g/s, 1.24*10^-4g/s , 0.000617g/s, 0.000686g/s from first flask to fourth. From these results, we can obviously see the higher the concentration, the faster the rate of reaction. An example proving this is the first flask compared to the fourth. The first flask had a rate of 2.917*10^-5g/s whereas the fourth had a rate of 0.000686g/s. The fourth flask has a significantly faster rate of reaction due to the higher concentration of molecules
