Temperature and Reaction Rates: An Inquiry-Based Approach—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

The rate of a chemical reaction describes how fast a reaction occurs. With the Temperature and Reaction Rates: An Inquiry-Based Approach—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, students design and carry out a procedure to determine the effect of temperature on the rate of reaction of magnesium with hydrochloric acid.

Concepts

  • Reaction Rate
  • Kinetic Theory
  • Temperature
  • Collision Theory
