C HEMISTRY 102L R EPORT T EMPLATE EXPT. Chemical Kinetics: Reaction of Crystal Violet with Sodium Hydroxide 13 13 Introduction The purpose of this report is to gain understanding of chemical kinetics by studying the effects of concentration on reaction rate. The objective of the experiment was to experimentally determine the rate law and rate constant for a sodium hydroxide and crystal violet reaction.. Materials and Methods The procedure for this experiment was taken from the lab manual for experiment 13. There were no apparent deviations from the given procedure. Results and Discussion Colorimetry can be used to describe the rates of chemical reactions by analyzing the change of color of the solution which in turn is a determinate of the progression of a reaction. If different concentrations of reactants are used one could then determine by the time elapsed the rate of reaction by comparing the results of each concentration. In this experiment, when the crystal violet solution reacts with NaOH the solution becomes more clear showing the progress of the reaction. By using multiple concentrations of crystal violet one could determine the order and rate of reaction. However, a colorimeter measure absorbance and we are measuring concentration. Therefore, Beer’s law must be used to calculate concentration from the absorbance according to its linear relationship as discovered by Beer.

    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.
