What conditions will increase the rate of a chemical reaction?
I am going to explain how to increase the rate of chemical reaction for solid, liquid and gas.
Changes in temperature either allows the rate to increase or decrease.
However, as little to no energy are exchanged between liquid and gas, increasing the temperature does not make a difference.
Increasing the pressure helps increase the solubility of a gas as it is directly proportional to the pressure of the particular gas above a liquid.
Besides, there are three ways to increase the rate of dissolving of solute into a solvent
- Stir it/Mix it
- Heat it
- Increase its' surface area
I hope this explanation is clear! Feel free to ask if there's anything you're unable to understand!
