# What are 4 things that will alter the rate of a chemical reaction?

Apr 14, 2018

Well here is a tentative order....

#### Explanation:

$\left(i\right)$ $\text{Temperature}$...clearly, the higher the temperature, the greater the rate of chemical reaction...

$\left(i i\right)$ $\text{Concentration}$...clearly, the greater the concentration of reactants, the greater the rate of chemical reaction...

$\left(i i i\right)$ $\text{Catalysis}$...catalysts can promote or hinder the rate of the reaction, by facilitating the path to equilibrium...

$\left(i v\right)$ $\text{Homogeneity}$...clearly, homogeneous reactions, in the gaseous or liquid state, will be faster than in homogeneous reactions occurring between solid and liquid or gas, liquid etc....
