Paddle Pop Stick 2 Co 3 Flame
663 wordsExperiments to determine the identity of metals by examining the colour of flame when samples of that metal are heated. The aim of this experiment was to find out whether different metals had different reactions when subjected to the flame of the Bunsen burner. This might then allow the classification and identification of certain metals if they have their own reactions, which will be different coloured flames for this experiment. It was hard for me to predict what would occur during the experim...

Bunsen Burner Hydrochloric Acid
762 wordsThe Problem: I am going to find out how temperature can affect the rate of reaction. Background information: Factors that change the rates of reactions are: ? Temperature? an increase in temperature will make the reaction occur faster. This happens because the particles of that substance move faster when it is heated. Because the particles move faster, they would collide more, making the reaction rate faster. ? Concentration? the increase in concentration, the greater and faster the reaction. Th...
