Jake Cummings April 10, 2014 CHEM 103-031L Group 4A Alexx Good, Breanna Becker Tiantian Yiu Rate Laws with Methylene Blue Introduction: In this experiment, a solution of Potassium Hydroxide, Methylene Blue, and Dextrose were used to determine a rate law to determine how fast the reaction occurs. By shaking the flask containing all of the materials, the solution would turn blue due to the added oxygen. The reaction was then timed to determine how long it took to return to the original colorless solution. This process was tested for excess dextrose, excess methylene blue, and added number of shakes to determine which factor had the most influence on the rate of reaction. The predicted rate law and the reaction being tested are shown below. Results: Throughout the experiment, as different variables were changed, the time for the solution to return to its original colorless self changed. This is due to the changes that

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
