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)

Limiting reactants
