Unformatted text preview: Caleb Jones CH114 17 November 2009 Gas Laws • Experimental Procedure The constant pressure/gas volume apparatus was used to create and collect the gas pro- duced by the antacid tablet when it reacted with the acetic acid solution. This apparatus was set up in a manner where the gas created in the flask, in which the chemical reaction occurred, was transferred to the cylinder where the amount of gas created could be measured. It was necessary to keep the funnel even with the fluctuating water level. Once the antacid tablet had completely dissolved the equipment was washed and the experiment repeated. • Gas Leaks It was established that there possibly was a leak in the system because of the amount of gas that was produced once the antacid tablet was completely dissolved. Our measurements of the gas collected was precise but consistently smaller than the average of the class . A common place for a gas leak to occur was the top of the flask where the antacid tablet was being dissolved...
