Ways to measure the rate of a reaction

The rate of a reaction can be observed either by measuring how quickly the reactants are used up or how quickly the products are formed. It's usually a lot easier to measure products forming. The rate of reaction can be calculated using the following formula: 

Rate of reaction = Amount of reactant used or amount of product formed / Time

There are different ways that the rate of a reaction can be measured. 

1) Precipitation

- This is when the product of the reaction is a precipitate which clouds the solution. 

- Observe a mark…
