    Disappearing Cross Experiment Plan ==== I must produce a piece of coursework investigating the rates of reaction. The rate of reaction is the rate of loss of a reactant or the rate of formation of a product during a chemical reaction. There are five different factors, which affect the rate of a reaction (1) Temperature (2) Concentration of a solution (3) Pressure of gases (4) Surface area of solids (5) And catalysts.

    Disappearing Cross Investigation Aim: To see how long it takes for sodium Thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid to react at different concentrations. My Hypothesis: Using the idea of the particle theory, the more dilute a solution is, the more time it will take for the particles to react. This is due to the fact that the particles have less energy reducing the collisions and the speed of which they collide, therefore taking longer to react. I predict that the more water I add to the

    we can change them and make comparisons of the changing reaction rate under different conditions. There are 3 ways to measure the rate of reaction.
