  • Marble chips and Hydrochloric acid
    • Concentration
      • If there are more particles, more collisions take place. This is similar to having a tank of fish - if there are many fish, the fish will swim into one another. If the tank has fewer fish, they less likely to swim into each other.

      • Temperature
        • The temperature increases the speed at which the particles move, which means the particles  collide more frequently and with a higher success rate.
        • Catalyst
          • A chemical that speeds up reactions without being used up itself. Lowers the amount of activation energy/ temperature needed, saving money on fuel. Similar to starting a fight between two people but not being the one to fight.
          • Surface Area
            • If the solid particles (in this case, the marble chips) are smaller, they have an increased surface area, meaning they are more likely to collide with the hydrochloric acid particles.
