Rates of a Reaction and Factors that Affect a Reaction

Unit 8: Unit 9: Reaction Rates and Equilibrium
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: Students will be able to describe what happens to concentration of reactants/products and energy in chemical reactions as well as the factors that affect chemical reactions as demonstrated by watching a demonstration, performing an activity, and taking notes.

Big Idea: Chemical reaction rates are described as the use of reactants or production of products over time. There are factors that affect reaction rates including concentration, temperature, surface area, and catalysts.
