What could be some sources of error for a reaction rate lab?

timer Asked: Mar 12th, 2016

Question description

We did an experiment about the rate of reaction of Mg ribbon and 1M HCl and then the rate of reaction of Mg ribbon and 3M HCl. The experiment was done using a gas burette, and a copper wire was wrapped around the Mg ribbon and tied to the rubber stopper which closed the end of the burette. We then flipped it (putting the rubber stopper end in an overflow plan containing water) and the reaction began. I wanted to know what could be come sources of error for this lab?
