Chapter 14: Chemical Kinetics Kinetics is the study of reaction rates and how much of the concentration of the product changes with time Products concentration tends to increase while Reactants concentration tends to increase Concentration is shown with “” Collision theory Reactant particles must collide Reactant must come into contact in the proper orientation (has to be lined up the right way) Reactants must have a sufficient amount of energy to react Surface Area and the effect on reaction rate Ex. If there was an iron nail in a bottle of oxygen the reaction would occur slowly because it is only reacting with the outer layer of molecules. If the iron nail was
