Constructs a table for results to show volume FB 1,


volume distilled water and time.

PDO
Recording

Correct headings and units. Units must have solidus:


/s; brackets: (s); or describe in words: time in seconds
or time in s. Units of volume: cm3 with solidus etc. as
above.
All recorded readings must have units.
If units in headings they must not be repeated for each
individual reading.

All times recorded to 1 second. Volumes of FB 1 and


water to 1 or 0.05 cm3.

MMO Decision

Two additional volumes of propanone chosen both of


which are less than 20 cm3.
These must not be more than one in the region 2014,
148 and < 8 and not within 1 cm3 of the original

reaction is 1st order with respect to propanone.
Rate increases as concentration (volume) increases

minimise intervals in volumes used.
Do not allow: carry out more experiments/use other
volumes of propanone/do experiments again/effects

because (a) Cr(CO)6 graph has a constant half-life (which is 700 s)
or construction lines on graph showing this)
[1]
because (b) PR3 graph is a straight line (of constant slope) or line shows a constant rate
of reaction or no change in rate or shows a linear decrease

step or only Cr(CO)6 is involved in slow step or [PR3] does not affect the rate
