At 20 °C, a 1.2 gram sample of Mg ribbon reacts rapidly with 10.0 milliliters of 1.0 M HCI(aq). Which change in conditions would have caused reaction to proceed more slowly?

Temperature, mass of magnesium, concentration of hydrochloric acid are factors that affect the rate of a reaction.


Changes that could cause the reaction to proceed more slowly include:

  • Lower temperature
  • Larger mass of magnesium
  • Lower concentration of #"HCl(aq)"#
  • Lower volume of #"HCl(aq)"#
