Abstract: Stoichiometry is used to figure out how much potassium chlorate in a mixture of potassium chlorate and an inert substance (a substance that does not react chemically). By determining the mass of the product experimentally, the mass percent composition is calculated stoichometrically. After finding the mass percent composition, the final calculation to find is percent error (with the accepted value given). In this experiment, we use a solid that contains potassium chlorate as the reactant and then determine how much potassium chlorate was actually in the solid. To determine the amount of potassium chlorate, we heat up the solid on a Bunsen burner and measure how the solid as changed while the reaction was taking place.
There are four objectives to this lab: to calculate the theoretical and percent yields, predict the effect of experimental error on percent yield, calculate the percent composition, and calculate the percent error.
The purpose of this lab is to determine the mass percent composition of potassium chlorate in an unknown substance by using Stoichiometry. Stoichiometry is the calculation of the quantities of chemical elements or compounds involved in chemical reactions. In this lab, the decomposition of the reaction would further the calculations of potassium chlorate in the mixture. Decomposition means the breaking down of compounds or mixtures into the form of elements or smaller substances. The hypothesis trying to be proven is that it is possible is find the mass of a compound can be determined through Stoichiometry and experimentally. Experimentally, the mixture will be heated. If the heating continues for an extended amount of time, the reaction will not be affected because the reaction has already been…...

The Stochiometryu

...Stoichiometry ________________________________________ Stoichiometry is simply the math behind chemistry. Given enough information, one can use stoichiometry to calculate masses, moles, and percents within a chemical equation. ________________________________________ ________________________________________ What is a Chemical Equation? In chemistry, we use symbols to represent the various chemicals. Success in chemistry depends upon developing a strong familiarity with these basic symbols. For example, the symbol "C"represents an atom of carbon, and "H" represents an atom of hydrogen. To represent a molecule of table salt, sodium chloride, we would use the notation "NaCl", where "Na" represents sodium and "Cl" represents chlorine. We call chlorine "chloride" in this case because of its connection to sodium. You should have reviewed naming schemes, or nomenclature, in earlier readings. A chemical equation is an expression of a chemical process. For example: AgNO3(aq) + NaCl(aq) ---> AgCl(s) + NaNO3(aq) In this equation, AgNO3 is mixed with NaCl. The equation shows that the reactants (AgNO3 and NaCl) react through some process (--->) to form the products (AgCl and NaNO3). Since they undergo a chemical process, they are changed fundamentally. Often chemical equations are written showing the state that each substance is in. The (s) sign means that the compound is a solid. The (l) sign means the substance is a liquid. The (aq) sign stands for aqueous in water and......

...against a concentration gradient into the lumen of synaptic vesicles. NT, neurotransmitter; H+, proton; ATP, adenosine triphosphate; ADP, adenosine diphosphate; Pi, inorganic phosphate. Transport coupling stoichiometry determines the effectiveness of substrate transport against a concentration gradient For both cotransporters and exchangers, the effectiveness of the transport process can be defined by theconcentrative capacity of the transport process. Concentrative capacity is a measure of how well the driven ion/molecule is concentrated against a concentration gradient. For example, for the Na+/glucose cotransporter, concentrative capacity can be expressed as the ratio of intracellular to extracellular glucose concentration ([Glucose]i/[Glucose]o). This ratio indicates how well the Na+/glucose cotransporter can concentrate glucose inside of the cell against a concentration gradient. Concentrative capacity is strictly related to the ion/substrate coupling stoichiometry of the transporter per transport cycle. For example, the coupling stoichiometry of the intestinal Na+/glucose cotransporter is 2 Na+ ions to 1 glucose molecule per transport cycle. That is to say that there is thermodynamic coupling between Na+ and glucose cotransport. For any given transporter, the coupling stoichiometry is usually a fixed ratio. A higher ion/substrate coupling ratio (e.g., 3:1 vs. 2:1) leads to a significantly higher concentrative capacity of transport. Cotransporters and exchangers may be......

...complete, remove the wet filter paper containing CaCO3 precipitate and place it on a folded paper towel. Put your filter paper in the assigned location to dry overnight. Part II: Massing the Dried Precipitate (Day 2) 8. Mass and record the mass of the dry filter paper containing the CaCO3 precipitate. Discard the filter and CaCO3 as instructed by your teacher. Post Lab Considerations: The double replacement reaction in this experiment formed two chemicals which are commonly known to you. The NaCl(aq) is salt water and the CaCO3(s) is a main component of some classroom chalks. Using the data collected, you will be able to calculate the moles of each of the chemicals that are added together to react. Then using the principles of stoichiometry you will be able to determine which chemical is the limiting reactant and thereby predict how much precipitate should form. This stoichiometric determination will then be compared to the actual mass of CaCO3(s) formed. Chemists are often concerned with optimal yields in manufacturing a certain chemical. One way of measuring this is to calculate the percent yield of that particular chemical by using this formula: Percent yield = actual mass produced (grams) x 100 theoretical mass produced (grams) Data Table: Your lab report should include a complete data table that includes all measurements and values. Don’t forget labels!! Your lab report should also include a complete observations table. Chemical......

Second Order Reaction Kinetics

...(III). From the stoichiometry of the reaction, the concentration of ascorbic acid at a given time is: C6H8O6=C6H8O60-12FeCN603--FeCN63- Once the initial concentrations are known for ascorbic acid and hexacyanoferrate (III) ion were calculated, the following equation 7 could be used to calculate for the rate constant k using the slope of ln[C6H8O6] /[Fe(CN)] vs time [7] slope m=k2C6H8O60-FeCN60 The rate of a reaction refers to the change in concentration of a component within a reaction per unit time. The rate is determined through stoichiometry and uses both the reactants and products of the reaction. The rate can also be expressed through a rate law, which is also determined through stoichiometry but only takes into account the reactants. It shows the relationship of the rate of a reaction to the rate constant, k, and the concentrations of the reactants, A and B, raised to a powers, x and y respectively, which are determined experimentally and do not depend on stoichiometric coefficients from the balanced equation. The order of a reaction refers to the sum of the experimentally determined powers that the concentrations of reactants are raised to in order to determine the rate of the reaction. Reactions are classified as zero order, first order, second order, or third order based on the sum of the powers of the reactant concentrations. In this experiment’s reaction with the hexacyanoferrate (III) ion and ascorbic acid, the reaction stoichiometry is of the form ...

Analysis of Iron Supplement by Redox Titration

...completely with a measured volume or mass of another substance. (Source: In this experiment, the titrant, the substance doing the titration, is the standardized potassium permanganate solution. This solution will determine the amount of analyte (a chemical substance that is the subject of chemical analysis (source: or iron (II) in the supplement pills. Using a balanced redox reaction (one with both an oxidation and reduction of electrons) for this experiment, the percent of iron in the sample can be calculated through basic stoichiometry. This percentage can be compared to the percentage labeled on the bottle of pills to determine percent error in the experiment. In this experiment, the percentage of iron in the tablets was calculated with only 1.55% error. Using the volume of KMnO4 titrated, the grams of iron (II) in the tablet were calculated through stoichiometry to be .066 grams and .067 grams in two trials. This was just slightly larger than the labeled .065 grams on the supplement bottle. The masses calculated showed that about 1.7% of the tablets were iron in each trial. Possible error in this experiment includes titrating too much solution, improper measurement of the tablet, and the amount of acid added to the analyte prior to titration. If the tablet contained a small quantity of another metal, more permanganate would have to be used to neutralize the solution and would increase the percent mass of iron in the......

The topics covered in this chapter are: • Atomic mass and average atomic mass • A vogadro’ s number, mole, and molar mass • Percent composition calculations • Empirical and molecular formula determinations • Chemical equations, amount of reactant and product calculations • Limiting reagents and reaction yield calculations Take Note: It is absolutely essential that you master the mole concept to do well on the quantitative aspects of AP Chemistry!! When solving quantitative problems on the Free Response section of the AP exam, supporting work must be shown to receive credit. Using dimensional analysis is a very powerful technique in solving problems. Be sure to report your answer to the correct number of significant figures (see Chapter 1 in this review book). Atomic mass and average atomic mass Atomic mass is the mass of an atom in atomic mass units (amu). One amu is defined as 1/12 of one C-12 atom. The C-12 isotope has a mass of exactly 12.000 amu. The C-12 isotope provides the relative scale for the masses of the other elements. Average atomic mass is the value reported on the periodic table, which takes into account the various isotopes of an element and their respective frequencies. To calculate the average atomic mass of an element, add up the different masses of the isotopes (using amu) multiplied by each isotope’s......

Rate Law called the order with respect to the reactant or catalyst. This page deals specifically with first- and second-order reaction kinetics, but you should know that other orders such as zeroth-order and 3rd order may also be involved in chemical kinetics. Reaction Rates and Stoichiometry In acidic solutions, hydrogen peroxide and iodide ion react according to the equation: H2O2 + 2H+ + 3I- = 2 H2O + I3-. In this reaction, the reaction Rate can be expressed as decreasing Rate of H2O2, - d[H2O2]/dt decreasing Rate of H+, - d[H+]/dt decreasing Rate of I-, - d[I-]/dt increasing Rate of H2O, + d[H2O] /dt increasing Rate of I3-, d[I3-]/dt However, from the stoichiometry, you can easily see the following relationship: d[H2O2] 1 d[H+] 1 d[I-] 1 d[H2O] d[I3-] - ------- = - - ------ = - - ------- = - ------ = -------- dt 2 dt 3 dt 2 dt dt In reality, if the concentration of H2O2 is low, the changes in concentrations of H+ and H2O are very difficult to detect because their quantities are so large in the solution. The merit in this equation is to show you that the rates of decreasing of reactant concentrations are governed by the stoichiometry. So do the rates of increasing of products concentrations. There are many ways to express the reaction Rates, for example d[H2O2] 1 d[H+] 1 d[I-] 1 d[H2O] d[I3-] - ------- = - - ------ = - - ------- = - ------ = -------- = Rate dt 2 ......

Percentage Compound of Oxygen

...Percentage of Oxygen in Compound-Stoichiometry/ Catalysis Page 2 Table of Contents Introduction Page 3 Experimental Procedure Page 4- 5 Results Page 6-7 Discussion Page 7 References Page 8 Page 3 Introduction This laboratory the weighting techniques and the use of stoichiometry to calculate percentages of substances were reviewed. To calculate the percent purity of sample, stoichometry relationships were used. In this lab stoichiometric relationship was use to find the percent of oxygen in potassium chlorate and also the percent purity of a sample provided. By definition, Stoichiometry is the quantitative relationship amongst elements in a compound to reactant ratio during a chemical reaction. Potassium chlorate (KClO₃), like many other oxygen composing compounds, is decomposed well by heat. Essentially there is an endothermic reaction that by the aid of a catalyst and heat will produce potassium chloride and oxygen. This equation looks as follows: KClO₃sMnO₂heat2KCls+3O₂(g) This process can happen without the presence of manganese dioxide (MnO₂), but it will take a very long time. Instead, MnO₂ is used as the catalyst to expedite the heating temperature and does not contribute to the overall oxygen output Page 4 Experimental procedure First, obtain two clean and dry 25x200mm Pyrex......

Gel Electrophoresis

...We have developed a new method utilizing affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE) for the determination of binding stoichiometries in biochemical systems. Using the same concentration of a ligand in the sample and the electrophoresis buffer, the appearance of an inverted peak corresponding to the free ligand in the resulting electropherogram provides a criterion of binding of a ligand to its receptor protein. For both low (fast off rates) and high (slow off rates) affinity systems, analysis of the integration of free ligand peak in electropherograms as a function of the total concentration of a ligand in samples at constant concentration of receptor protein yields the binding stoichiometry of the ligand to the protein. Applications of this technique to studies of (i) the inhibition of carbonic anhydrases (CA, EC, from human and bovine erythrocytes) by 4-alkylbenzenesulfonamide 1, (ii) the interaction of a monoclonal antibody to human serum albumin (anti-HSA) with its antigen HSA, and (iii) the binding of streptavidin (from Streptomyces avidinii) to biotin derivatives (monobiotinylated oligodeoxyribonucleotide 2, fluorescein biotin, or Lucifer Yellow biotin) yield stoichiometries of 1:1, 1:2, and 1:4, respectively. For multivalent, tight-binding systems, this ACE method can readily separate stable intermediate species. This method is generally applicable to both tight- and weak-binding systems, requires only nanograms of proteins and ligands, involves no radioactive......

Lab 4: Stoichiometry

...Braidon Berry Lab 4: Stoichiometry of a Precipitation Reaction Background: Stoichiometry is a challenging yet essential part of learning chemistry. By utilitizing the resources of this course, as well as the lab work. Learning this difficult section of the course can be done with hard work and sharp attention. Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to learn how to connect calculations with real life examples. Doing this lab while doing the calculations for the molarity and molar masses, made it more challenging, however it did help in seating the knowledge and connecting it to the course. Procedure: To start, the dry Calcium Chloride Dihydrate, was weighed out and mixed with a small amount of distilled water. After that step the molarity of the CaCl2 was determined and logged in the data sheet. Similar steps were followed in terms of measuring dry material, weighing it, and then mixing it with distilled water. This will be necessary in order to observe the reaction and calculate more. Then the water was now filtered in the paper filter, this filter would later be dried in the sunlight and weighed to measure the mass of the product. After the filtering was complete, the percent yield could be calculated, as well as the actual mass of the precipitate. Data: |Initial: CaCl2*2H20 (g) |1.0 g | |Initial: CaCl2*2H20 (moles) ...
