  • INTRODUCTION: Chemical Change

    788 Words  | 2 Pages

    Chemical changes are when substances combine to form a new substance which is called synthesis and are usually irreversible. A chemical reaction causes atoms in the substances to rearrange and change their properties or composition therefore resulting in at least one new substance. Chemical reactions can also cause the decomposition of a substance resulting in two or more different substances. There are many manmade and natural chemical changes that happen everyday. Two main natural chemical changes

    Investigation to find out if changes in concentration of acid affect the rate of a chemical reaction PLANNING – Title – Investigation to find out if changes in concentration of acid affect the rate of a chemical reaction. Introduction – The rate of reaction can be defined as the speed at which a reaction takes place. The rate of reaction tells us how quickly a chemical reaction has happened. There are many things that can affect the rate of reaction, (some of these are shown in figure 1 below

  • An Investigation into Electrolysis - Copper Sulphate

    1372 Words  | 3 Pages

    Investigation into Electrolysis - Copper Sulphate Introduction Decomposition caused by electricity is called electrolysis. The electrical energy causes a chemical change. When a salt is dissolved in water, its ions become free to move so the solution can be "electrolyzed." The products of the electrolysis depend on the chemical solution, its strength and the type of electrode. The cathode is negatively charged and therefore attracts to it positive ions. E.g. hydrogen. The more reactive

  • Electrolysis of Copper in Copper Sulphate Solution

    1485 Words  | 3 Pages

    Electrolysis of Copper in Copper Sulphate Solution Introduction Aim This is an investigation into how temperature affects the amount of copper lost from the Anode and gained on the Cathode during electrolysis. Electrolysis is… The chemical change by passing electric charge through certain conducting liquids (electrolytes). The current is conducted by migration of ions - negative ones from the Anode (positive electrode), and positive ones to the Cathode (negative electrode). Reactions

  • The effect of catalase concentration on the breakdown rate of h2o2

    3970 Words  | 8 Pages

    understanding: A rate is a measure of change that occurs in a given time whilst a reaction is the interaction of substances undergoing chemical change. The velocity at which any mix of substances are transformed into a product/s in a given unit of time is the rate of reaction. The speed at which this modification occurs relies on two main factors; the amount of collisions between reacting particles and what portion of these collisions are successful in producing a change within the substances present

    During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a vast amount of changes in a small amount of time. There are physical, mental, and even chemical changes that occur during the nine months that it takes to develop a healthy baby. With the ongoing changes that are taking place within the mother, the care of the mother and the developing fetus is changing as well. Certain testing that could be done on a woman who is 30 weeks pregnant, in the third trimester, would not be performed on a woman who is 10

    A Critical Analysis of the Effects of Chemical Castration and Physical Castration on the Recidivism Rates of Sex Offenders Introduction This paper examines the effects of chemical castration and physical castration on the recidivism rates of sex offenders. Using theory integration or the multifactor approach, the findings reveal there are several factors influencing sex offender recidivism. Both chemical castration and physical castration have the potential to reduce the recidivism rates of

  • Identifying Five Unknown Chemicals

    Identifying Five Unknown Chemicals I was given 5 unknown samples, which are sodium chloride, sodium thiosulfate, calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate and sodium nitrate and these samples are all white and solid. However, I don’t know which substance is which sample and I was only given some information about the physical and chemical properties of these substances. In order to identify the 5 unknown samples, knowing which sample is which substance, I have to carry out this experiment,

    activation energy, which is explained as the collision theory. Collision theory explains how chemical reactions occur and why rates of reaction differ. For a reaction to occur, particles must collide. If the collision causes a chemical change it is referred to as a fruitful collision. For a reaction to occur, the reactant particles must collide. Only a certain fraction of the total collisions cause chemical change; these are called successful collisions. The successful collisions have activation energy

    resources here for many years to come we are going to have to make some drastic changes in the way we treat the earth, and these changes will have to start with our pollutants. (Jones,1993,pp.4-15) Agricultural pollution is a very big contributor to water pollution. Problems we see with agriculture are applications of fertilizers, insecticides, and pesticides. We have made vast improvements in the types of chemicals we are using, as to how environmentally friendly they are. In 1985 the amount of

Even water vapor, the main constituent driving the greenhouse effect, is invisible, but whose existence can be inferred when it condenses as one exhales on a wintry day. The chemicals-such as dioxin, PCBs, pesticides, arsenic, DDT, and lead-that we litter our soils, atmosphere, and waterways with are also nearly invisible, especially at the concentrations that we, the users and consumers, are told are "acceptable." Microscopic
