Rate Law Determination of a Crystal Violet Reaction

Objective: To determine the reaction order with respect to crystal violet and determine the rate constant and half life for the reaction: [CV+ + OH– Þ CVOH]. Procedure: (1) Calibrate the Colorimeter with distilled water. (2) Prepare a solution with 10ml each of the provided CV and OH. (3) Let solution stand for 3 minutes before beginning (4). (4) Place solution in Colorimeter and record data point with software. (5) Remove solution for one minute. (6) Repeat steps (4-5) twenty […]
