Key factors that affect reaction
· Concentration( in liquids) or pressure (in gases)
· Surface area
· The use of a catalyst
Definition from Wikipedia to remind me what Reaction rate is: The reaction rate (rate of reaction) or speed of reaction for a reactant or product in a particular reaction is intuitively defined as how fast or slow a reaction takes place. For example, the oxidative rusting of iron under the atmosphere is a slow reaction that can take many years, but the combustion of cellulose in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second (right).
