Big Idea 4

Students witness measurable color changes in this kinetics advanced inquiry activity. A homework set guides students through interpreting experimental data and the factors that influence the rate of a reaction. Students arrive to lab prepared with their very own procedure and carry out the experiment to determine the rate of the iodination of acetone in one 50-minute period. Students will be amazed at the obvious and measurable color changes!

Complete for 24 students working in pairs.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Acetone, 500 mL
Hydrochloric acid solution, 1 M, 500 mL, 2
Iodine solution, 0.05 M, 30 mL, 2

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-2: Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
HS-PS1-3: Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
HS-PS1-4: Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
HS-PS1-5: Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-PS1-6: Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
HS-PS2-6: Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
