I. Introduction This lab deals with chemical kinetics and the rate that reactions occur. The reaction being investigated is the bleaching of a food dye with common house hold bleach (NaOCl). The problem being investigated is to determine the rate law for the bleaching compound NaOCl. This will include finding the order of the reaction with respect to both the dye and the bleach, and then determining the rate constant. The rate of the chemical reaction is defined as the rate of change in the concentration of a reactant or a product over time. This rate can be dependent upon

Unformatted text preview: temperature, the amount of each reactant and the possible inclusion of a catalyst. The rate of the reaction can be found by finding the slope of the line tangent to a point on the concentration vs. time graph. Concentration can be found using Beer’s Law to convert absorption values into concentrations. The rate order can be found by plugging data into the integrated rate equations and plotted. The best linear plot gives the order of the reactions....
