Chem 2 - Reaction rates, Salts and Electrolysis - Rates of reaction

Revision cards for Rates of reaction, hope this helps! :]


Rates of reaction

Reactions can go at different rates.

- One of the slowest rates in the rust of iron

- A moderate speed reaction is metals (like magnesium) reacting with acid, which produces a gentle stream of bubbles

- A very fast reaction is an explosion, which can be over in a fraction of a second

There are different factors that affect the speed of a reaction: (Learn them all)

- Temperature

- Concentration (Or pressure)

- The use of a catalyst

- Surface area of solids
