Instructions to candidates

  • Answer all questions in this question paper.
  • All working MUST be clearly shown where necessary.
  • You are NOT allowed working with the apparatus for the first 15 minutes of the 2 ¼ hours allowed for this paper. This time is to enable you read the question paper and make sure you have all the chemicals and apparatus you need.
  • KNEC mathematical tables and non-programmable silent electronic calculators may be
  1. QUESTION 1
    You are provided with
    • Aqueous sulphuric VI oxide solution A,
    • 5 M Sodium Hydroxide solution
    • Magnesium ribbon solid C
    • Phenolphthalein indicator

      You are required to determine
    • The rate of reaction of magnesium ribbon with aqueous sulphuric VI acid solution A
    • The concentration of sulphuric VI acid in moles per litre

      Procedure 1.
    • Using a measuring cylinder put 70cm3 of solution A and place it in a 100 ml beaker. Using a ruler cut off 1cm piece of magnesium ribbon to obtain 8 pieces. Ready with a stop watch, drop 1 piece of magnesium ribbon into the beaker containing the 70cm3 of solution A and immediately start your stop watch. Note the time taken for all the ribbons to react completely and record it in the table below
    • Without adjusting the stop watch to zero, drop another 1cm piece of magnesium ribbon immediately to the same mixture and record the time taken for the second ribbon to react completely.
    • Repeat the experiment until the 8th piece of magnesium ribbon is used.
    • Keep the solution mixture for use in procedure II. Complete the table by computing 1/time sec -1

      1. Plot a graph of 1/time sec -1 (Y –axis) against length of magnesium ribbon (cm) used. (3mk)
      2. From the graph determine the time that would be taken if 5.5cm of ribbon to react. (1mk)
      3. Explain how the rate of reaction vary with increase of length of magnesium ribbon 2mks)

        Procedure II
        • Place all the solution obtained in procedure I into a clean 250ml volumetric flask. Add distilled water to make 250 cm3. Label the resulting solution as D. Fill the burette with solution B. Pipette 25.0 cm of solution D add 3 drops of phenolphthalein indicator and titrate with solution B. Record your results in table II. Repeat the titration two more times.     4MKS
