Skill 3: Planning Subject : Chemistry Level : Sec 3 / 4 Express Worksheet title: To determine how changes in concentration of sodium thiosulfate solution affects the rate of reaction Aim: In this experiment you will be assessed on your ability to: Plan and produce a procedure for an investigation The reaction shown is an example of a clock reaction:

Description:

Na2S2O3(aq) + 2H+(aq)  2Na+(aq) + 2S (s) + SO3 + H2O (l) When hydrochloric acid reacts with sodium thiosulfate (Na2S2O3(aq) ) solution, the yellow sulfur precipitate appears only after some time, with a delay in the appearance. Design an experiment to show how changes in concentration of sodium thiosulfate solution will affect the rate of reaction, by keeping the concentration of acid constant.
