  • Finding the Ka of Ethanoic Acid

    516 Words  | 3 Pages

    the Ka of Ethanoic Acid Aim: ==== To find out the Ka of ethanoic acid, chloroethanoic acid and dichloroethanoic acid. Procedure: ========== 1. The pH meter is calibrated, using a buffer solution of accurately known pH. 2. 20.0cm3 of 0.10M ethanoic acid was pipetted into a conical flask. 3. 0.10M sodium hydroxide solution was titrated using phenolphthalein as indicator, until the solution was just turned pink. 4. A further 20.0cm3 of the same ethanoic acid solution was

  • Analysing the Ethanoic Acid Concentration in Different Types of Vinegars

    3747 Words  | 15 Pages

    Analysing the Ethanoic Acid Concentration in Different Types of Vinegars Vinegar is a mixture of various acids, ethanoic acid being the most abundant. Most vinegars are made from a sugary liquid, this liquid is fermented to produce ethanol and then oxidised to form ethanoic acid. Different vinegars use different sugary liquids and this could lead to variation between the vinegars. My aim in this investigation is to discover whether the concentration of ethanoic acid varies between vinegars

  • Preparation of Ethanol and Ethanoic Acid

    4639 Words  | 19 Pages

    Preparation of Ethanol and Ethanoic Acid AIM: To obtain pure samples of Ethanol (CH3CH2OH) and Ethanoic Acid (CH3COOH) from fermented Yeast (Saccharomyces Cerevisiae). BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The use of yeast in food production is the oldest and most extensive contribution made by any group of microorganisms. A most common substrate that yeast can work with is GLUCOSE. Glucose is a monosaccharide, which are sweet crystalline sugars that dissolve easily in water to form sweet solutions

  • Preparation of Ethanol and Ethanoic Acid

    3009 Words  | 13 Pages

    Preparation of Ethanol and Ethanoic Acid Introduction to report ---------------------- This report contains 5 practical experiments to produce ethanoic acid from ethanol. The first practical is the preparation of ethanol from glucose using yeast during the process of fermentation; this has been demonstrated in class. In this practical the glucose is converted into ethanol and carbon dioxide by respiratory enzymes from the yeast. The ethanol solution will be between 5-15% and the ethanol

  • The Concentration and Rate of Work of Urease

    575 Words  | 3 Pages

    going to start off by finding how much of each liquid I should use. I have decided to use 5 cm3 of 1 % urea solution, 2 cm3 of ethanoic acid, I will change the amount of urease to see how long it will take to work. To start this I am going to get 5 test tubes and a test tube rack, and put 5 cm3 of Urea in each test tube, along with this I will put 2 cm3 of ethanoic acid in each test tube, then I put 6 drops of universal indicator in each test tube, for the urease I put 1 cm3 in the first test

  • Acid And Base Research Paper

    2788 Words  | 12 Pages

    1. Definition of Acid and Bases: 1.1 Arrhenius definition of acid and base: Arrhenius Acid: The substance or a compound which gives H+ ions in aqueous solution Arrhenius base: Base is a substance or compound that produces OH- ions in aqueous solutions. Chemists have known for some time that the H+ ion doesn’t exist in aqueous solutions as an independent species. The modernized Arrhenius definition of acid is that they are substances that produce H3O+ ions in aqueous solutions. It did not take longer

  • How pH Level Affects Corrosion Rate

    2542 Words  | 11 Pages

    was that the liquid with the lowest pH level; Sprite, would have the quickest corrosion rate. Dana Puti Vinegar had the quickest corrosion rate proving the statement wrong, it was discovered that it contains ethanoic acid; acid containing twice the amount of carbon dioxide than a regular acid. To further understand this topic, future research could include; how does the amount of liquid incorporated affect the corrosion rate, how does the temperature of the liquid affect the corrosion rate, and how

  • The Oxidation of Ethanol

    primary alcohol and can be oxidized to either an alderhyde or a carboxylic acid. [IMAGE]CH3CH2OH + [O] CH3CHO + H2O [IMAGE]CH3CH2OH + 2[O] CH3COOH + H2O The purpose of this experiment is to oxidize ethanol and then to test the product to determine whether it has been oxidised to ethanal or oxidised to ethanoic acid. Method We added 6cm³ of water to a pear-shaped flask, then added 2cm³ of concentrated sulphuric acid, and set up the apparatus as shown below, but with a stopper in place

  • Investigating Factors that Affect the Amount of Heat Produced in Neutralisation

    2725 Words  | 11 Pages

    I have chosen the glass beaker and the polystyrene cup because I have found that these two containers are resistant to any sort of corrosion that might occur whilst I will be using the acid and the alkalis. Diagram [IMAGE] Method ====== 1. I will first measure out 20ml of 2M Hydrochloric acid and pour it into the glass beaker. 2. Then I will measure the starting temperature. 3. Then I will out 20ml of 2M Sodium hydroxide add it into the

  • Wine Production

    ...oncentration as it may have generated the greatest concentration of tartaric acid, whereas Wines B and C may have produced other acids present in wine, such as malic, lactic, citric, acetic or succinic acid. Esters are compounds formed by condensation between an acid and an alcohol. In the Investigation, ethanol in the wine would have provided the alcohol and the acids present would have produced the acid component, therefore it was predicted that the taste test would see to the detection
