Increasing the Rate of a Reaction

View mindmap
  • Kinetics
    • Increasing the Temperature
      • The particles increase in energy, more particles have greater than the activation energy.More successful collisions
    • Increasing the Concentration
      • More particles are present in a given volume, more likely to collide
    • Increasing the Pressure
      • More particles in a given volume increases chance of collisions
    • Increasing surface area
      • More particles available to collide. More sites for a reaction
    • Using a Catalyst
      • Provides a different pathway for a reaction
