• ## The Molecular Formula of Succinic Acid

976 Words  | 2 Pages

The Molecular Formula of Succinic Acid The relative formula mass is the mass of 1 molecule of succinic acid compared with 1/12th of the mass of an atom of carbon-12. This is obtained by adding together the relative atomic masses of the atoms within the molecule according to its written formula. However we do not know the exact formula: HOOC(CH )nCOOH Where n is a whole number between 1 and 4 So to calculate the relative formula mass I must use the formula m = n ×Mr

• ## Investigating the Effect of Temperature on the Rate of a Reaction

because I believe it will create better results and make an easier experiment. Prediction: I believe that when the temperature is increased the particles energy will increase there for creating more collisions between the magnesium and the acid. In effect increasing the speed of the reaction. Preliminary work: After doing various experiments in my preliminary work I decided to use: -20ml of 2HCl -20ml of H2O -5cm of magnesium ribbon -Starting temperature of 20o -+10o

• ## Unknown Solution Lab Report

1173 Words  | 3 Pages

Discussion Unknown Solution 1 I believe that the first unknown solution is made up of molecular compounds. This is because the solution had very little conductivity, meaning there was not an equal amount of ions broken down in the solution. The solution had no scattering, which means the molecular compounds were fully dissolved in their solvent, which was not water. When tap water was added to solution 1, the color changed from green to blue. If water was the original solvent, we would not see this

gaseous solvent to form a solution [1]. The solubility of a particular substance is dependent on the physical and chemical properties of both the solute and solvent [1]. The temperature, pressure and pH of the solution also has an effect on the solubility. The extent of the solubility of a certain solute in a particular solvent is measured as saturation, where adding more solute will not increase the concentration of the solution and will precipitate the excess in the solution. Phase transfer reagents
