A 50-mL Mohr buret is connected to a 1-ft length of capillary tubing. The buret is then filled with water and the volume of water versus time is monitored as the water gradually flows through the capillary tubing.

This process is found to be first-order with a rate constant of 0.014 mL/sec. What will happen if the length of the capillary tube is doubled?

a)The process will still be first-order, but the rate constant will decrease.

b)The order and rate constant for the process will both change.

c)The order and rate constant for the process will both be constant.

d)The order of the process will change, but the rate constant will be constant.

e)The process will still be first-order, but the rate constant will increase.

why is it not c or d,

  2. Joe is right.
    i looked at all the other stupid websites and tried D and C. They were both wrong.

    If you use a dirty buret, the titrant leaves drops of solution behind as the meniscus descends during delivery of the solution. The volume actually delivered by the buret will be __________ the volume your readings of the buret

    In the experiment of buret calibration, what is the importance of having total buret correction? And does the density of the water at a specific temperature affect this corrections?

    This is one of those titration labs, maybe you could answer it? Why must a buret be rinsed with NaOH solution before it is filled and not water? Note: ( Buret will be full of NaOH )
