Rates of Reaction

Rates of Reaction gives you a model of the collision theory to explain with and explore.

You’ll use it to:

  • Show how particles must collide in order to react.
  • Investigate which factors affect the frequency of collisions.
  • Compare your real reactions to this model reaction.
  • Investigate how activation energy affects the rate of reaction.
  • Show how only collisions with sufficient energy lead to a reaction.
  • Run lots of virtual investigations without using chemicals and doing the washing up.
