Below you can find some data from various experiments carried out at SSERC involving reacting different combinations of acids and carbonates.

Hydrochloric Acid

This first section involves the reaction of different carbonates with hydrochloric acid – first simply seeing the time taken for a sample of carbonate to dissolve and then looking at the relative rate of reaction.

Nitric Acid

Here is data from some similar experiments using nitric acid.

Ethanoic Acid

Here is data from another set of similar experiments using ethanoic acid this time – a weak acid.
