Rates of Chemical Reaction

Rate vs. Temperature:

Why do reactions take place faster at higher temperature?

Rate vs. Concentration:

Why do concentrated chemicals react faster? Again, more molecules, more likely a collision will occur. Or, for some chemicals (and radioactivity), there are more particles to break down.


Heat, Temperature & Chemical Change

We talked about temperature and rate.
