The study of stoichiometry is a branch off Chemistry its the study of the amounts of substances that are involved in reactions. For this experiment kinetics is a huge part of it. Kinetics is explained as the reaction speed and or rate of reaction. To observe these reactions made by having reactants, sodium hydrogen carbonate, NaHCO3 known as baking soda and acetic acid, CH3COOH that is vinegar being mixed together. The products were carbon dioxide, water, and sodium acetate. Because this reaction will be based on its speed according to the difference in temperature, the higher the temperature the faster the reaction will occur creating a direct relationship. The balanced equation is as follows:

NaHCO3 (aq)+ CH3COOH (aq) →

Once it is set, acquire a weigh boat and add 4.2 grams of baking soda to the weigh boat. After doing so repeat steps 1 and 2, four more times, which would mean five weigh boats of 4.2 grams of baking soda. Once that is completed, place the weigh boats somewhere safe and move on to part 2.

Part 2: Preparing the Acetic acid Wash the 100mL-graduated cylinder and dry it with paper towels. Then get the Acetic acid and pour exactly 100mL of it into the graduated cylinder (This should almost fill it up). When that is completed repeat steps 1 and 2 four more times, which would mean five graduated cylinders of 100mL of Acetic acid.

Part 3: Carrying out the reaction Wash the 250mL-beaker and dry it with paper towels. Add one of the 4.2 grams of catalyst (Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate) that has been obtained in step one into the beaker. Making sure that the beaker is dry before hand. Get the stopwatch ready to record the time of the reaction. Apply one of the 100mL Acetic acid into the beaker and start the stopwatch as soon as the two substances meet. Record the qualitative data observed in the
