Rates of Reaction Introduction

Rates of reaction and factors affecting rate

Firstly, let’s think about some different types of reactions and how quickly or slowly they occur.

This video is a simple demonstration of how a change in surface area can affect the average rate of a reaction.

Optional Video: Table on Fire

You can see how quickly the fuel burns when spread over the table. Think about how much more fuel would be needed to cook a meal if you had it spread over a large surface area rather than kept in a container with a small surface area.
