Year 11 Rate of Reaction Investigation

Posted: January 18, 2019

What are the factors that affect how fast a chemical reaction occurs?

Students chose to change either the temperature of the acid or the concentration of the acid, to see how that affected the volume of hydrogen gas released in a specific quantity of time.
