1. You are provided with:
- Solid A
- 2.0 M hydrochloric acid, solution B
- 0.1 M sodium hydroxide
You are required to determine the enthalpy change ΔH, for the reaction between solid A and one mole of hydrochloric acid.
a. Using a burette, place 20.0 cm3 of 2.0 M hydrochloric acid, solution B in a 100ml beaker. Measure the temperature of the solution after every half-minute and record the values in table 1. At exactly 2½ minutes, add all of solid A to the acid. Stir the mixture gently with the thermometer. Measure the temperature of the mixture after every half-minute and record the values in table 1. (Retain the mixture for use in procedure B)
i. Plot a graph of temperature (Y-axis) against time. (3 marks)
ii. Using the graph, determine the change in temperature, ΔT. (1 mark)
iii. Calculate the heat change for the reaction. (Assume that the specific heat capacity of the mixture is 4.2 Jg-1K-1 and the density of the mixture is 1g/cm3). (3 marks)
b. Rinse the burette thoroughly and fill with sodium hydroxide. Transfer all the contents of the 100ml beaker used in procedure A into a 250 ml volumetric flask. Add distilled water to make up to the mark. Label this solution C. Using a pipette and a pipette filler, place 25.0 cm3 of solution C into a 250ml conical flask. Add two or three drops of phenolphthalein indicator and titrate against sodium hydroxide. Record your results in table 2. Repeat titration two more times and complete table 2.
i. Average volume of sodium hydroxide used. (3 marks)
ii. The number of moles of:
I. Sodium hydroxide used. (1 mark)
II. Hydrochloric acid in 25cm3 of solution C. (1 mark)
III. Hydrochloric acid in 250cm3 of solution C. (1 mark)
IV. Hydrochloric acid in 20.0 cm3 of solution B. (1 mark)
V. Hydrochloric acid that reacted with solid A. (1 mark)
c. Calculate the enthalpy of reaction between solid A and one mole of hydrochloric acid. (Show the sign of ΔH). (2 marks)
2. You are provided with solid D. Carry out the tests below. Write your observations and inferences in the spaces provided.
a. Place all of solid D in a clean dry test-tube and heat it strongly until no further change occurs. Test any gases produced with both blue and red litmus papers. Allow the residue to cool and use it for test (b).
b. Add about 10cm3 of 2M of hydrochloric acid to the residue and shake for about three minutes. Keep the mixture for test (c).
i. Place about 1 cm3 of the mixture in a test-tube and add aqueous ammonia dropwise until in excess.
ii. To the rest of the mixture, add all of solid E provided and shake the mixture well.
3. You are provided with solid F. Carry out the tests below. Write your observations and inferences in the spaces provided.
a. Place about one third of solid F on a metallic spatula and burn it using a Bunsen burner.
b. Place the remaining of solid F in a test-tube. Add about 6 cm3 of distilled water and shake the mixture well. (Retain the mixture for use in test (c).
