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