Classifying Chemical Reactions Lab


Purpose:

How can you show your understanding of the different


types of chemical reactions?

Hypothesis: Does Not Apply


Materials:

As in text (pg. 196-199).

Procedure: Follow the procedures for Parts 1, 2, 4, 5, and 8 from pg.


196-199.
For Part 7 Add equal parts of solid ammonium nitrate and
barium hydroxide to a test tube (using the end of a wooden
splint). Mix/crush together with a glass rod. Note the
chemical change.
HINT H2O (l) is a product of this reaction.
Observations:

See attached Handout.

Questions: 1. A catalyst is a substance that speeds up the rate of


reaction but is unchanged at the end of the reaction. In
which reaction do you think a catalyst was used? What
evidence supports your claim?
2. Which reactions generated gases as products? Briefly
explain the tests for oxygen and hydrogen.
3. In many experiments, aqueous solutions are made using
nitrates. What property do you think nitrates have that
makes them suitable for making aqueous solutions?
Conclusion: In your conclusion you should:
a) Answer your purpose.
b) Discuss the following for each of the reactions:
o What did you notice/expect from the
reactants?
o What happened? What change was
evident? What did you discover?
o How were you able to classify the
reaction?
