Topic 1 – Reaction Rates
From Standard Grade you should know that:a.
reaction rates are dependent on
the concentration of the reactants;
particle size;
catalysts speed up reactions but are not used up during the reactionc.
the concentration of reactants in solution is measured in units of moles per litre written as:
mol/litremol/litremol/litremol/litre or mol litremol litremol litremol litre
or mol lmol lmol lmol l
The rate of a reaction is usually found experimentally by measuring how fast a reactant isused up or how fast a product is formed.This could involve measuring:a.
the rate of mass loss or increase in volume if a gas is a product.b.
a change in pH if, for example, an acid is being neutralised.c.
the rate at which a colour develops or disappears – this is done using an instrumentcalled a colorimeter.Rate is defined as the change in concentration of reactants or products in unit time. We studied the reaction between marble chips (calcium carbonate) and dilutehydrochloric acid.
+ 2HCl
+ H
+ CO
The reaction can be followed in a number of ways:a.
by measuring the mass loss of the flask as the carbon dioxide is produced andescapes from the flask.b.
by measuring the fall in concentration of acid as the reaction proceeds.c.
by collecting and measuring the volume of carbon dioxide produced.The diagrams indicate how this might be done.a b c
