Bio-URGENT

OK i did a lab in which we had to calculate the rate of reaction by observing how much gas was produced by the experiment. to do this we used a ubside down graduated cylinder in a tub of water and placed a gas collection tube between the testube and the graduated cylinder

WHat possible sourced of error can be caused by this method of gas collection

ANY HELP would be appreciate =)
