Only at low concentrations is the relation between concentration and absorption linear. Thus, in order to calculate with any precision the concentration (using the Beer-Lambert law), a dilute solution must be used.
Thanks for your response, NascentOxygen!
No gas is evolved by the mixture of these two solutions.
This is difficult to distinguish; during the entire reaction (as the solution goes from clear to deep blue), gas appears to form on or near the metallic copper. However, after several hours, gas...
Hey there PF,
I'm trying to determine the reaction equation for a little home experiment I've been conducting. The setup is very minimal: copper metal in a solution of 3% H2O2 and 5% CH3COOH. In reality, I'm probably missing something fairly straightforward.
The reaction occurs very...
