Collision Theory
· Reactions take place when particles
collide with a certain amount of energy.
· The minimum amount of energy needed
for the particles to react is called the
activation energy and is different for
each reaction.
Activation energy ­ the minimum amount
of energy particles must have to react…read more

Speeding up reactions
· Anything that increases the chance of
effective collision increases the rate (speed)
of reaction. Factors include:
· Increased surface Area
· Increased concentration
· Increased temperature
· Use of a catalyst…read more

Surface Area
· The reactions of solids can clearly only take place at
the surface of the solid.
· If we break a solid into smaller pieces we get more
area and a faster reaction.
Molecules collide with the Extra surface for molecules to
surface of the solid collide with.…read more
