Rates of Reaction

How Can the Rate of a Chemical Reaction be Changed?

There are 5 ways to increase the rate of a reaction.
The rate of a chemical reaction may be increased by

1) Increasing the temperature.

2) Increasing the concentration (in solution).

3) Increasing the pressure (in gases).

4) Increasing the surface area of a solid.

5) Using a catalyst.

The opposite of 1, 2, 3 and 4 will decrease the rate of a reaction.
