Instructions to candidates

  • Answer ALL questions in this paper.
  • All workings must be shown clearly.

  1. You are provided with:
    • Solid A
    • 2.0M hydrochloric acid, solution B.
    • 0.10M sodium hydroxide

      You are required to determine the enthalpy change ∆H, for the reaction between solid A and 1 mole of hydrochloric acid.
    • Procedure 1.
      • Using a burette, place 20.0cm3 of hydrochloric acid solution B in a 100 ml beaker.
      • Measure the temperature of the solution after every half minute and record the values in table 1. At exactly 2 ½ minute, add all of solid A to the acid, stir the mixture gently with the thermometer.
      • Measure and record the values in table 1. (Retain the mixture for use in procedure II).

         Temperature (°C)          x          
        1. Plot a graph of temperature (Y – axis) against time on the grid provided. (3 marks)
        2. Using the graph, determine the temperature change ∆T (1 mark)
        3. Calculate the heat change for the reaction (Assume that specific heat capacity of the mixture is 4.2 j/g/k and the density of the mixture is 1g/cm 3 (2 marks)
    • Procedure II
      • Rinse the burette thoroughly and fill it with sodium hydroxide. Transfer all the contents of the 100ml beaker used in procedure I into a 250ml volumetric flask.
      • Add distilled water to make it to the mark. Label this solution C.
      • Using a pipette and pipette filer, place 25 cm 3 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 (4 marks)
