today, i did a lab on the molar volume of hydrogen gas. in this experiment, we poured around 10 mL of hydrocholric acid into a gas collection tube with water and measured the volume of gas to be around 20.9 mL.
would changing the molarity of the hydrochloric acid affect the final results? explain.

  • chemistry -

    no, it would change the rate of the reaction is all. I assume you had an excess of acid. Now if you did not have an excess of acid, that is another matter.

  • chemistry -

    yes we did.
    so would it slow or speed up the rate of the reaction?

  • chemistry -

    if you dilute, it slows it down.
