Rate of Reaction Experiments
Reaction of Hydrochloric Acid and Marble Chips
.Measure the volume of gas evolved with a gas syringe and take readings at regular intervals
.Make a table of readings and plot them as a graph, time goes on the x axis and volume goes on the y axis
.Repeat the experiment with the same measurements but the marble more crushed
.Then repeat with powdered chalk instead
Using finer particles gives the marble a larger surface area, this causes more frequent collisions which makes the reaction faster.
