Kinetics
Rate of reaction:

Decrease in the concentration of reactants per unit time, or the increase in the concentration of products per
unit time




Collision Theory:

If a successful chemical reaction is to take place between two particles, they must first collide with sufficient
energy and with the correct orientation…

- The collision frequency increases as they collide more often

The higher the activation energy, the greater the effect an increase in temperature will have.




A small increase in temperature greatly increases number of particles with greater energy than the activation
energy.

5) Catalyst

A catalyst is a substance which…
