    phosphoric acid‚ and 1mL of concentrated sulfuric acid was added to a 250 mL round bottom flask and mixed thoroughly with a magnetic stirrer. A simple distillation set up was installed with a 250mL round bottom flask‚ jack‚ stirrer‚ heating mantle‚ and variac. The solution was heated gently with a small heating mantle to distill the crude product while keeping the vapor temperature around 100C or less. The crude product was collected which contained water‚ 4-methylcyclohexene‚ and trace acid. D

    GIVEN: TO DESIGN A 1000TPD CAPACITY H2SO4 ACID PLANT BASIS: 1 HOUR OF OPERATION. PURITY: PRODUCT WHICH IS TO BE MANUFACTURED IS ASSUMED TO HAVE STRENGTH OF 98% ACID. 1000TPD implies that we have Acid 1000 x 10 / 24 = 41666.67 Kg/Hr of 3 With 98% purity‚ the acid that is produced per hour = (98 x 41666.67) / 100 = 40833.34 Kg/Hr Kmoles of Sulfuric acid to be produced = 40833.34 / 98 = 416.667 Kmoles/Hr It’s assumed that overall absorption of the acid is 100 % = 416.667 / 1.0 Then‚ SO3 required

    H2SO3 Sulfurous acid is the chemical compound with the formula H2SO3. H2SO3 is a clear‚ colorless liquid with a sulfurous odor. It is a weak acid that is formed when sulfur dioxide is dissolved in water. Sulfurous acid is used as a bleaching and chemical reducing agent that is often used in medicine‚ throat and nasal sprays and skin lotions. Antiseptics‚ anti-fermentative‚ and antizymotics include sulfites that are formed from the acid. This compound is only stable in aqueous solutions‚ and

    Sodium thiosulfate is safe to handle and store‚ but if it is mixed with an acid‚ a reaction happens. When dilute sodium thiosulfate is mixed with an acid‚ solid sulphur is made‚ which makes the solution appear cloudy. The reaction also makes small amounts of toxic sulphur dioxide gas. You will choose one factor and investigate this factor’s effect on the rate of reaction between sodium thiosulfate and dilute hydrochloric acid. A colorimeter is a device used in colorimetry that generally refers to

    Experiment 1 :Alkanes&Alkenes:Combustion and action of sulphuric acid. Introduction In the study of organic chemistry‚ the organic compounds which are made up of carbon and hydrogen are called hydrocarbons. They can be gases as‚ propane‚ they can be liquids‚ for example‚ benzene‚ or they can be low-melting solids and waxes‚ for example‚ polystyrene. There are four classifications of hydrocarbons; saturated hydrocarbons or alkanes‚ unsaturated hydrocarbons or alkenes and alkynes‚ cycloalkanes‚ and
