Chemistry Unit 2.4 - Rates of Reaction

Hi, this is a REALLY basic resource, as I feel RofR is a simple, and short module. This questions are tailored to fill in any gaps of knowledge that I have - but feel free to use them ^^

HideShow resource information
Describe catalysts.
They are not used up in a reaction. Many different catalysts are needed for different reactions.
