Unit 10.6.5: The effect of temperature on the rate of a chemical reaction
Teacher prompt to investigate the effect of temperature on reaction rate using a suitable reaction. Exothermic reactions are unsuitable as temperature control would be difficult.
They are to design and carry out a suitable investigation.
The sulfuric acid could be 'doped' with copper ions to increase the rate of reaction.
Feedback should deal with the activation energy and a simplified Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution.
