When chemical manufacturing facilities run chemical reactions in bulk, the consequences of gas production must be taken into account. Although the amount of gas produced may be figured through stoichiometric means and gas law relationships, the amount actually produced usually differs from the calculations that assume ideal behavior. The goal of this lab was to determine a method for calculating the amount of gas released from a chemical reaction by applying the ideal gas law and comparing the theoretic and actual yield of each reaction. Experimental: Materials- 1 M HCl(aq)- Strips of Mg ribbon- CaCO 3 (s)- Na 2 CO 3 (s)- Electronic Scale- Manometer (Pressure Sensor)- 25mL Syringe w/connectors- 125mL Flask w/rubber stopper- Tygon Tubing Procedure Part 1: Boyle’s Law 1. The total volume if the beaker with the stopper installed was calculated P a ge | 2 2. Boyle’s law is then observed by recording five measurements of pressure 2....
