Figure 1: Experimental set-up of HCl-Magnesium reaction. To determine the hypothesis, you would first find the time of reaction actually effected by the concentration of HCL solution. A Through this experiment, we have tested the process in which the time of reaction can be acquired through the undertaking of a chemical reaction, in this case, one between hydrochloric acid and magnesium. magnesium (Mg) is known as a chemical element with the atomic number of 12. This is a low significance error since we based mostly on the disappearance of magnesium into the acid rather than disappearance gas bubbles. develop a relationship between the mass of magnesium reacted and the volume of … 2HCl(aq) + Mg(s) → MgCl2(aq) + H2(g) This experiment in particular will explore how the pressure changes as the above reaction proceeds. Therefore, we sought to test the duration of reaction of equal lengths Magnesium ribbons with reducing concentrations of hydrochloric acid. stream Before starting the investigation, I decided to do some research about magnesium and hydrochloric acid. The following chemicals and reagents were required in the experimentation: Apparatus and personal protection equipment. A. %���� For instance hydrogen bubbles block magnesium surface or blow the magnesium to the surface of the acid solution therefore, slowing down the reaction. Becaus… The chemical equation for this experiment is: Mg (s) + 2 HCl (aq) --> MgCl 2 (aq) + H 2 (g). Describe the materials before and after stating whether they are a metal or non metal. This brought a slight confusion in stopwatch reading. The quantities for this experiment are as follows: 1 g of magnesium will require approximately 42 ml of 1M hydrochloric acid to be consumed. Given that, powdered Magnesium metal has a high surface area than equivalent lengths of Magnesium ribbon, we predict that the former will have shorter duration of reaction with hydrochloric acid than the latter. Reactants with high surface area provide a greater binding surface for other reacting molecules, and therefore increase the number of successful collisions at any moment. Then ready with the stopwatch we tipped the magnesium in to beaker and put in the cork with the rubber tubing and started the stopwatch. Empty the beaker and rinse it out. The balanced formula for this is: Mg(s) + 2HCL(aq) MgCl2(aq) + H2(g) Magnesium + hydrochloric acid Magnesium Chloride + Hydrogen. Introduction In the experiment the magnesium reacts with the hydrochloric acid to create magnesium chloride and hydrogen. The volume of the hydrogen gas produced will be measured at room temperature and pressure. Using this information, a small piece of metal magnesium is reacted with hydrochloric acid.
