How does the amount of baking soda mixed with vinegar affect the volume of gas produced?

The rate of reaction is the increase or decrease time taken at which the products are formed or concentration increase or decrease between a reaction of two or more substances. In the reaction, new bonds are formed whilst others have been broken.
When a solute acts on a solvent a chemical reaction takes place. Here we will be using baking soda and vinegar which are our two components which will cause a chemical reaction. Reactions can be affected by several things such as temperature, concentration and the presence or absence of a catalyst which is a substance which can increase the rate of the reaction.
To determine the rate of a reaction there are many methods that can be used. For example. A method which will be used in this experiment will be to use a gas syringe to measure the volume of the gas which has been produced. The cylinder inside, will be pushed out to show a quantitative presentation of the volume produced by the reaction.
Collision theory is a theory proposed by Max Trantz that explains how chemical reactions occur and why there are different rates for different reactions.

Hypothesis I predict that the more baking powder is added to the vinegar, the

This indicates that the reaction has limited the amount of moles it reacts with. The number of moles in 0.3 grams of baking powder is 0,00357mole. In vinegar it is 0,8375 moles. This indicating that as 0,00357 is smaller than 0,8357, 0,00357 is the maximum amount of moles that can interact with the moles from vinegar. Therefore, once 0,00357moles have reacted of the 0.3 grams of baking powder, the reaction will stop. Therefore indicating also that as the number of moles increases with the mass of baking powder used, there are more moles to react with the vinegar, causing for a high volume of gas
