PLEASE HELP! Chemistry IA Idea


Recommended Posts

Okay so I am in HL Chem and I am worried my IA idea might be too simple or obvious. Basically I want to test if the temperature of water affects the rate of the Acid Base reaction between Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid in bath bombs. I would make the bombs myself to standardize the amount of everything that goes in and test a bunch of different times in water at different temperatures. Then I time the reaction to see how long it takes in each different temperature of water. My one concern is that it seems a bit too obvious that the temperature will affect the rate and I worry that it's just to simplistic for an HL student. Some ideas I had to make it more complicated was to change the pH of water instead of the temperature and see if that affects the rate. I'm really not sure. Please help!
