I am carrying out a peice of coursework on the reaction between sodium thiosulphate (0.4mol) and hydrochloric acid(3 mol). the aim of the experiment is to determine the rate equation of the experiment by altering the concentrations of each subatance independantly. but i have a few queries:
1. what is created when sodium thiosulphate reacts with hydrochloric acid? does it make a salt? if so what is its name and formula?
2. is there any preliminary history to this experiment that you know of that i could include in my plan to improve the overall mark, as the internet has been prity fruitless as of yet.
3. can you give me an overall guide to how to plan my coursework?
thank you very much
Can you please read my personal statement and change anything that you dont think is right/good and give me any advice to make it the best personal statement for a course in Fashion.
Having always been interested in fashion I have chosen to study courses at University, which incorporate Merchandising, marketing Communications or management with fashion.
Fashion has always been my main interest when growing up; being creative with my clothes has always challenged me to become an individual person. Following fashion trends and going to fashion shows, such as the London Fashion show has enabled my interest in fashion to grow tremendously. I have also learned that ‘there is still fun to be had with fashion’ a quote from the New York Times, Fashion and style newspaper.
A merchandising management or marketing communications course alongside fashion complements my interest in the industry. I like to spot latest trends, a skill that is invaluable to market products in such a rapidly expanding industry.
After gaining fashion and business skills I want to work as a Fashion Merchandiser with a good, fashion label. Otherwise I will work in the Fashion industry and work my way up to a merchandiser.
I have done work experience with Ice Fashion Limited who design and supply clothes to high street labels such as New Look, Pilot and River Island. Working with them gave me a great insight into the industry and has pushed me further to pursue this at university.
Again, during the half term I have organised more work experience this time with a childrenswear company.
During my AS year I have involved myself in numerous activities. I have taken part in Young Enterprise where I gained many business related skills such as marketing, sales and management skills. I also volunteered myself for in-class support for I.C.T helping year 9 classes familiarise themselves with the computers and certain tasks.
Now in year 13 I have volunteered my skills with Listening Ear to year 7 and year 8 students, at lunch times once a week, myself and other trained students listen to the problems of younger students. This has enabled me to become a more patient person, and has taught me to listen, which is an important skill to gain when under education.
My sports interests range from water sports to athletic sports, such as basketball and hurdles; which I take part in every year on sports day. I also have more creative interests such as dance which I have been doing since I was 7. My leisure interests include listening to music I also enjoy travelling to different countries such as Australia, India, Malaysia and South Africa where I enjoy finding out about different traditions and customs.
i have been asked to comment on the effect that detergents of different concentrations have on the cell membrane (and what particular part of this) of beetroot. and what will happen when the beetroot is placed in the detergent and why this will happenn?
Recently, I have done a redox titration between sodium triosulphate and iodine.
However, I was asked why the thiosulphate solution and the star solution had to be prepared fresh.
Moreover, how can I find the weight of iodine in an iodized tablet with the help of the titration result
I would be grateful if you could help me. Thank You~~
i'm doing an A-level statistics coursework that i want to be worthy of an 'A' grade- but i'm having trouble finding secondary dada that is vast and will enable me to make varied hypothesis and also use different statistical methods. i do not mind much about what the stats coursework would be about so far i can come up with data which will get me started! please help!!!! can u give me some web sites that contan data that i could use, and give me some pointers to get me started on my coursework- please i NEED an A in maths and this coursework is vital to that goal! help me get started!
Hi! I'm a sixth former just going into yr13 and i'd really appreciate some help with my Personal Statement. I'm hoping to apply to Oxford and some other fairly prestigious unis such as Warwick, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Queen Mary to read English Lit and French. Mainly I'd like advice as to how to 'sell yourself' w/o seeming arrogant. For instance, I achieved a Top Candidate Award in English Literature GCSE by the AQA (one of the top five best marks!) and also just got 300/300 UMS points in my French AS-level. Should I tell them about this and if so, where? I'd be really grateful for some constructive criticism, my statement is (roughly) as follows:
I have chosen to apply for a Joint Honours Degree in English and French because of my deep enthusiasm for, and extensive interest in both these disciplines.
Up to the age of 16 I was home-educated and I feel that this has dramatically impacted both my approach and my attitude to education. Through largely teaching myself my GCSEs, I developed the ability to organize and discipline myself. More importantly, the freedom from the constraints of curriculum allowed me to tailor my studies around my own interests and so be motivated by a genuine desire to learn rather than by the need to pass examinations.
I opted to take AS levels in Music, History, Law and Critical Thinking as I felt these disciplines would develop and enhance the analytical and linguistic skills required for a language degree. Additionally I have found that these subjects complement and inform my study of English Literature and French. Studying the 16th Century has deepened my understanding of the contexts within which writers such as Webster and Shakespeare functioned. Analyzing the works of classical and contemporary music has heightened my awareness of the importance of structure, motif and theme development in shaping the meaning of both French and English literary texts. I find the similarity between musical ‘architecture’, and the construction of literature fascinating – both require areas of novelty, challenge, uncertainty, familiarity, tension and release to be truly effective.
My enthusiasm for English Literature stems from a long-held love of reading, and
from an appreciation of the way in which the written word can encapsulate the
real world on many levels – both mundane and profound. I am particularly
interested in the writers of the Romantic period especially the female writers,
Mary Shelley, Emily Bronte, and Jane Austen. To further explore this topic I
have recently been reading Romanticism and Gender. I also
find Shakespeare inspirational for the sheer prolific volume and originality of his
work. Harold Bloom’s passionately favourable critique ‘The Invention of the
Human’ is a book which has heightened my desire to learn more about the
influence of his genius.
A desire to understand the mechanics of language and to acquire the ability to communicate fluently in another language is what has fuelled my interest in French. While my ambition is still primarily to perfect my command of the French language I am excited by the avenue it provides into a foreign land of literature. In particular I would relish the opportunity to study English and French literature comparatively, and explore the ways in which English and French writers have learned from and reacted against each other’s work. Currently I am enjoying reading Camus’ L’Etranger’ and ‘La Peste’ but I also have an interest in the oeuvres of Moliere, Maupassant and Hugo.
Beyond academia I pursue my interest in music by playing the piano (to GradeVIII ASBRM standard) flute and being a member of the college choir. I am an active member of Young Life (a Christian inter-church youth organization) as well as a Southport Young Life Committee member. For two successive summers I have undertaken voluntary work with United Beach Missions.
Although I have by no means fully decided on my preferred career at this stage, I am keen to pursue an occupation directly related to the use of English and/or French language. A week’s work experience shadowing a journalist has revealed to me the importance of having a faultlessly accurate command of language to pursue a writing-related career. It is this kind of masterful understanding of language that I hope to acquire though my undergraduate study.
I promise that this is my last biology question until the end of the holidays! I know I have asked 3 questions in 2 days, but I really want to get my homework done so I can enjoy myself.
Anyway, we have been given a past planning exercise to complete for the course. Here it is:
OCR Biology planning exercise 2003
You sre required to plan an investigation to find out the relationship between the transpiration rate of a shoot and the degree of opening of the stomata of its leaves. You will need to devise methods to determine:
* The degree of stomatal opening
* The transpiration rate
I have access to my school's equipment, plant matter etc.
I was going to use a potometer, and put the shoots at 5 different temperatures (with room temp as the control). I was then going to calibrate a microscope and measure how open all of the stomata are. Is this ok, or am I totally barking up the wrong tree?
Again, thanks so much for all your help!
I Need some help with my coursework i need to find out

3. and a use of antifebrin
Hiya I'm doing an A-level statistics coursework and wondering if anyone had any ideas on what I could do for a statistics coursework! If you've got any old ones that you don't need plz contact me time is short!
Hello there, I have been set this piece of coursework in which I have to determine the rate equation of the reaction between Hydrochloric acid and Sodium Thiosulphate, the concentrations of the reactants being 2 mol dm-3 and 0.4 mol dm-3 respectively, I also need to add distilled watwer so as to make sure that the the total volume is the same throughout each run through. The problem I have is that I have to vary volume of one reactant whilst keeping the volume of the other reactant constant, but I do not know what volumes to use. My teacher said that I need to make one of the reactants at least 25 times more concentrated but this has confused me more. Can you please help me in anyway, I will really appreciate it.
