Introduction/Purpose: Relative proportion of components can determine how much of certain substances should be added in order to maintain stability within the mixture. The lab presents an early method for determining acid concentration using the aforementioned method. We will be investigating what occurs when a metal carbonate (a solid) is gradually added to a solution of acid. This will enhance our observation analysis skills; introduce basic

Unformatted text preview: chemical reaction processes and changes; and introduce proportional reasoning and a general idea of chemical stoichiometry. As we investigate this procedure, we will come to a concluded mass-to-volume ratio between sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid. This ratio represents how much sodium carbonate it takes to fully react with each sample of hydrochloric acid....
