Rates of Reactions
The rate of a reaction can be measured by the rate at which a reactant is used up, or the rate at which a product is formed.
Different reactions can happen at different rates. Reactions that happen slowly have a low rate of reaction. Reactions that happen quickly have a high rate of reaction. For example, the chemical weathering of rocks is a very slow reaction: it has a low rate of reaction. Explosions are very fast reactions: they have a high rate of reaction.
For a chemical reaction to occur, the reactant particles must collide. Collisions with too little energy do not produce a reaction.
Chemical reactions can only happen if reactant particles collide with enough energy. The more frequently particles collide, and the greater the proportion of collisions with enough energy, the greater the rate of reaction.
The collision must also have enough energy for the particles to react. The minimum energy needed for particles to react is called the activation energy.
So we can...

We will answer some questions and then we will do a practical based on concentration and rate and analyse and evaluate it.
