Introduction to Reaction Rates: The “Blue Bottle” Reaction—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

If a reaction is too slow, it may not be practical. If too fast, it may explode. Measuring and controlling reaction rates makes it possible for chemists and engineers to make a variety of products safely and economically. With the Introduction to Reaction Rates: The “Blue Bottle” Reaction—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, investigate how the rate of a reaction can be measured and how reaction conditions affect reaction rates.
