The rate of reaction measures how much product is formed in a fixed time period.
Common units for rates if reaction are > g/s or g/min >cm3/s or cm3/min
Comparing the rate of reaction during a reaction from graphs
Compared to the slow reaction, the graph line for the faster reaction:
- Has a steeper gradient at the start
- Becomes horizontal sooner (showing that the reaction time is less)
A reaction stops when all the…
