Blast Off Lab
Blast Off! Lab # 4 Purpose: To design an experiment to test several variables that affect the build up of gas in the closed canister.

Hypothesis: I think that we will have to adjust the amount of water to control the speed of the reaction.

Materials: Â· Apron Â· Safety Goggles Â· 4 Alka-Seltzer Tablets Â· 2 Plastic Film Containers (with lids) Â· Water Â· Stop Watch or Timer Â· Graduated Cylinder Procedure: Step 1. Put on apron and Safety goggles.

Step 2. Get Alka-Seltzer tablets and plastic film container from teacher.

Step 3. Measure x ml of distilled water with the graduated cylinder and pour it into the film container.

Step 4. Drop x grams of Alka-Seltzer into the film container and close lids quickly.

Step 5. Wait for reaction and record time and amount of water and Alka-Seltzer on the observation chart.

Step 6. Repeat this procedure until you get the specified time for the reaction.

Step 7. When you have reached this point perform the experiment several more times with the same amount of everything to see if the reaction takes the same amount of time.

Trial Number Amount of Alka-Seltzer (g) Amount of Water (Ml) Time of "Blast off"(Seconds) Next Step 1 1.2 25 16 1 ml more water 2 1.2 26 15 None 3 1.2 27 13 1 ml less water 4 1.2 26 15 None 5 1.2 26 15 None Conclusion: In conclusion the reaction was controlled by the amount of water and also the amount of Alka-Seltzer mixed together.

Error Analysis: No human or experimental errors made.

Analysis Question: I would have tried to control the experiment more by trying different methods such as temperatures and amount of Alka-Seltzer

3. What was your prediction about the results of each factor tested in your two lab procedures? Explain your predictions based on your knowledge of the dissolving process, collision theory, and reaction rates. My predictions of the results on this lab were right. I figured that if the Alka-Seltzer were crushed up it would make it more easier to dissolve since they were in little pieces instead of one big tablet.…

The purpose of this experiment was the reaction rate, and how surface area affected the reaction rate between water and alka seltzer tablets. The half crushed tablet had more particles in the tablet causing more surface area to dissolve in the water. The more surface area in the tablet, the more efficient it is in reacting in with water. Overall in my experiment, it was successful and it was a valid experiment. This experiment had taught me and to understand that the effect…
