## Corks Lab ExampleIn lab we often do the cork experiment where we find the order of reaction for the blue colored corks when they are tossed back and forth for 20 seconds. Use the data given below to calculate the order of the blue corks with its uncertainty.
Answer
Remember:
rate = k[W]
When dividing one rate by another the k will always cancel and, if one of the concentrations remains constant, it will also cancel. In this case the k and [W]
rate
⇒ 1.875 =(1.67)
rate
⇒ 0.667 =(0.714)
rate
⇒ 0.355 =(0.429) Average y = 1.2174, range = 0.022, ± = range/2 = 0.011 ⇒ Result = average ± range/2 = 1.2174 ± 0.011
Or, when properly rounded |
