September 26, 2016
Lab 11B Iodine Clock Reaction Conclusion
Please review the CER (Claim Evidence Reasoning) framework for writing your lab report conclusion:
Claim: When the concentration of the reactants increased the rate of the reaction increased.
Evidence: The reciprocal of the reaction time was used as a measure of the speed of the reaction. The slope, which is the trend line of the graph of the concentration (Molarity) versus reciprocal time in seconds (1/s) has a positive slope. The rate of the reaction increased as the concentration increased.
Reasoning: The trend line of the graph of the concentration (Molarity) versus time (s) is decreasing and non-linear. In order to show that that rate increases with increasing concentration (Molarity) a graph of concentration versus reciprocal seconds was plotted and a best fit line was drawn. The rate/speed of the reaction was observed to increase with increased concentration.
The rate/speed of a reaction is proportional to the concentration of a particular reactant. This is due to chance collisions forming products being proportional to the concentration. Collision theory predicts that when more particles (reactants) are involved in successful collisions the rate of the reaction will increase. The units of moles/litres/1/s shows that when solution concentration increases the reaction rate increases.
Sources of Error: At decreased concentration it was difficult to observe the exact time that the pigment had changed. Therefore at lower concentrations the time reported for the reaction to go to completion was greater that it should have been. More than one timing device was used between the different lab groups. Because of this difference the time was not recorded in exactly the same manner. Different lab groups used larger test tubes. The optical quality of the larger test tubes might differ and therefore the reported time might differ.

- Plants grow and survive by absorbing dissolved nutrients and micronutrients from the soil. When the soil solution is either too acidic or too basic some of the nutrients do not dissolve as readily as they should (the solubility is decreased).
- The nutrients that plants need for growth dissolve most readily when the pH of the soil is between 6.o and 7.5. If the soil solution falls below 6.0 nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are less available. If the pH is larger than 7.5 nutrients such as iron, manganese and phosphorus are less available.
