Introduction my investigation is about the rate of reaction a rate of reaction is defined as how fast or slow a reaction takes place for example, the oxidation of iron under the atmosphere is a slow reaction which can take many years, but the combustion of butane in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second. The reaction rate or rate of reaction is the speed at which reactants are converted into products for example, the oxidative rusting of iron under earth's atmosphere is a slow reaction that can take many years, but the combustion of cellulose in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second for most reactions, the. A secondary school revision resource for aqa gcse additional science about chemical reactions, energy changes, rates of reaction and reversible reactions. Students carry out a simple reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium of two different masses in one reaction magnesium is in excess and in the other magnesium is the limiting reactant students then carry out some analysis questions on the. Rates of reaction experiment introduction this experiment is called 'rates of reaction', i will be partaking in this experiment to find out what factors effect the ' rate of reaction' between magnesium (strips) and hydrochloric acid each time i repeat the experiment, i will be adding 05 moles of hydrochloric acid and.
8 a2 chemistry revision guide rate of reaction a study of reaction rates ( chemical kinetics) allows us to understand exactly how reactions work you cannot deduce a reaction mechanism simply by examining the ordinary balanced chemical equation experimental work to determine the reaction rate leads to the rate. Introduction in acid-base chemical reactions, there are four main variables, which influence the rate of reaction these include the presence or absence of catalyst, temperature, concentration, and surface area of reactants temperature influences the rates of reaction through kinetic energy, such that high temperatures. Introduction to rates of reactions 3-5 preliminary test introduction 6 preliminary test 1 6-12 rates of reactions science (chemistry) coursework my coursework is based on rates of reaction rates of reaction deals with the collision theory, this theory explains how frequently and how hard (sufficient energy) the reacting.
