To Investigate the Effect of Hydrogen Peroxide Concentration

To Investigate the effect of hydrogen peroxide concentration on enzyme catalase Indroductlon: Enzymes are proteins. They function as biological catalysts. They lower the energy barrier of a reaction so that the reaction can take place at body temperature. Also, they can speed up Metabolic reactions without being changed or used up. During a reaction, an […]

The Effect of Hydrogen Peroxide on Seed Germination

First recognized as a chemical compound In 1818, hydrogen peroxide Is a clear, colorless llquld most often used for cleaning or disinfectlng(Brltannlca, 2013). Since pure hydrogen peroxide Is unstable, It Is found In stores as an aqueous solution. The chemical formula for hydrogen peroxide Is H202 which means there are two hydrogen atoms and two […]

The catalytic decomposition of Hydrogen peroxide

It has the following equation: 2H202 (l) 2H20 (l) + 02 (8) This reaction does occur spontaneously at room temperature with the presence of ltraviolet light; however only very slowly. It occurs far faster when a catalyst is used. Catalysts are substances that speed the rate of a reaction without getting involved in the reaction […]

Effect of Mno2 on the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide

Chemistry Catalyst Report Aim I am trying to investigate the effect of the mass of magnesium dioxide used on the speed of the reaction of 2H2O2(aq) ? 2H2O(l) + O2(g). I hypothesize that the speed of the reaction is proportional to the rate of decomposition. Independent Variable The mass of MnO2 used Dependent Variable The […]

In this experiment you will determine the molar heat of dissociation DHdis of the HO-OH bond in hydrogen peroxide

For this reaction the heat of dissociation is equal to the HO-OH bond energy. Since it is difficult to measure the heat of this reaction directly, you will use Hess’ Law to determine DHdis. Hess’ Law states that since the enthalpy is a function of state, it does not matter how the final state is […]

Kinetics of the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide Lab

Introduction: In this week’s lab experiment, the rate of decomposition of hydrogen peroxide forming oxygen gas will be observed and studied. Since the rate of a chemical reaction is dependent on two things; the concentrations of the reactants and the temperature at which the process is performed, the rate can be measured at which a […]
