Year 11 Rate of Reaction Investigation

Posted: February 19, 2016

What are the factors that affect how fast a chemical reaction occurs? In Year 11 Science, students investigated the rate of chemical reaction between magnesium metal and hydrochloric acid, which releases hydrogen gas as a product. Students chose to change either the temperature of the acid, the concentration of the acid, or the mass of the magnesium metal, to see how that affected the volume of hydrogen gas released in a specific amountĀ of time.
