With this experiment, why are you adding HCL dropwise

    • Thread Starter


    It does not say dropwise!

    But you add slowly for 2 reasons:

    1. You do not want a sudden release of large amounts of gas.
    2. You do not want the reaction mixture to get very hot.

    Both of the above could lead to explosion/ are hazardous.
Do you have exam superstitions?
