Effect Of Temperature On Raction Rate

684 words - 3 pages

Effect of temperature on RXN rate

Factors affecting rate of reaction:
Surface area – as we increase surface area, we increase the reaction rate. The more the collisions the faster the reaction.
Concentration – as we increase concentration we increase the reaction rate. In reaction with between gases, increasing the pressure, increase the reaction rate.
Temperature –     as we increase the temperature, we increase the reaction rate. Raising the temperature makes particles collide more often in a certain time, and makes it more likely that collision results in a reaction.
Catalyst -     catalyst is a substance, which speed up a chemical reaction. At the end of the reaction the catalyst is chemically unchanged.

5-     Put the first solution in the flask.
6-     Put the flask in a water bath at a controlled temperature of 30ºC.
7-     Quickly add the second solution and start timing
8-     Stop timing when you can no longer see the mark (X) on the tile.
9-     Repeat steps 1 to 4 but using a different temperature each time.
10-     The final time use the same amount but at 70ºC.

From my results I have concluded that temperature has a great affect on the reaction rate of HCl and Na2S2O3, because as we see from he graph the slope is increasing gradually, this is because increasing the temperature makes particles collide more often in a certain time and makes it more likely that a collision will result in a reaction. Because there are more effective collisions, temperature has a great affect on reaction rate, if you raise the temperature by 10ºC the time will decrease by nearly 6 seconds indicating the increase in speed of the reaction.

From my experiment I have found some sources of error, which are that when I was adding the HCl to the Na2S2O3 I was adding quickly so some of the HCl spilt from the test tube and didn’t go inside the flask containing Na2S2O3, so my results might not be very accurate. Also when I was adding HCl to a measuring cylinder I didn’t accurately read the cm so my results might have been affected.

Therefore, if the Gammarus is subjected to increasing concentrations of alcohol, then the heart rate will decrease with the coinciding alcohol concentration increases.ProcedureIn this experiment the effect of alcohol on the heart rate of a

The Effects of temperature on Enzymes

733 words - 3 pages The Effects of Temperature on Enzymes Reaction Rate. INTRODUCTION Enzymes are proteins that speed up many chemical reactions in cells. Enzymes affect the rate of almost all chemical reactions which take place in organisms. Like all other proteins, enzyme function may be affected by the change in any aspect of its structure. The effect of a change in enzyme structure is called denaturation; this means that the enzyme becomes inactive
