  • Electrolysis of Copper in Copper Sulphate Solution

    1485 Words  | 6 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).

  • An Investigation into Electrolysis - Copper Sulphate

    1372 Words  | 6 Pages

    An 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

  • The electrolysis of copper sulphate solution and copper electrodes

    1255 Words  | 6 Pages

    The electrolysis of copper sulphate solution and copper electrodes Introduction: For my GCSE Chemistry assessment I will be investigating the electrolysis of copper sulphate solution with the copper (ii) plates. Aim: My intention for this observation is to find out how the current has an effect on the mass of copper deposited in the electrolysis of copper sulphate and copper (ii) plates. Safety Precautions: In this investigation I will make sure that everything is as safe as possible and that

  • Volume's Effect on a Copper Sulphate Solution

    922 Words  | 4 Pages

    Effect on a Copper Sulphate Solution We are trying to find out if the current though a copper sulphate solutions volume is increased. To find this information out I shall perform an experiment using the following equipment; · 1 power pack · 1 beaker · 2 carbon rods for anode and cathode · 1 ammeter · 1 measuring cylinder · 2 crocodile clip wirers I shall also be using 60cm3 volume of copper sulphate in my preliminary results to decide upon the concentration of copper sulphate

  • Investigation to Identify the Formula of Hydrated Copper Sulphate

    1583 Words  | 7 Pages

    Investigation to Identify the Formula of Hydrated Copper Sulphate Aim: I plan to investigate the formula of Hydrated Copper Sulphate and, more importantly, what x stands for in the formula (CuSO4.xH2O). This will tell me how many molecules of water surround each molecule of Copper Sulphate. To do this I plan to work out the amount of water a set mass of Hydrated Copper Sulphate loses when it becomes anhydrous. I will work this out by measuring the difference in mass between the two states

  • Investigating the Effect of Copper Sulphate on Amylase Activity

    3341 Words  | 14 Pages

    Investigating the Effect of Copper Sulphate on Amylase Activity Aim The aim of my experiment is to observe the affect on amylase when adding copper sulphate to a starch solution. Introduction Enzymes are that act as catalysts, in other words they increase the rate of chemical reactions. Consider the following general reaction between two substances, A and B, which react together to form a product, substance C: A + B = C In biological systems, this reaction might occur very

  • An Investigation Into The Effect Of An Electric Current On Copper Sulphate Solution

    767 Words  | 4 Pages

    Electric Current On Copper Sulphate Solution Aim In this experiment my aim is to enforce and develop ideas about the investigation into the effect of an electrical current through copper sulphate solution. Safety - Electricity is dangerous - Aware of coppers sharp edges - Long hair tied back - Use of acids in experiment Diagram 1) Weigh the cathode 2) Set up apparatus below 3) After a minute, remove the copper and shake off the excess copper sulphate solution. Wipe the copper with acetone and

  • Comparing the Solubility's of Copper Sulphate, Sodium Chloride and Potassium Nitrate

    968 Words  | 4 Pages

    Comparing the Solubility's of Copper Sulphate, Sodium Chloride and Potassium Nitrate Comparing the solubility's of copper sulphate, sodium chloride and potassium nitrate Background Information Molecular solids (sugar) and ionic solids (salts) both dissolve in water. However, they both dissolve in different ways. The intermolecular forces holding molecules of sugar together are relatively weak so when sugar is placed in water these bonds are broken and individual C12H22O11 molecules

  • Investigation of the Factor that Affects the Change in Temperature Between Iron and Copper Sulphate

    2236 Words  | 9 Pages

    the Factor that Affects the Change in Temperature Between Iron and Copper Sulphate In this investigation I am going to investigate a factor that effects the change in temperature between copper sulphate solution and iron filings. The variable involved in this investigation are: · The volume of copper sulphate · The mass of iron filings added · Rise in temperature · Concentration of the copper sulphate In this in investigation my input variable that I am going to change
