There are 4 major factors that directly influence how fast or slow a reaction proceeds.

Factors Influencing Rates

Concept #1: Collision Frequency & Successful Collisions

Concept #2: 4 Factors Influencing Reaction Rates

Example #1: Which of the following would cause the rate of a chemical reaction to slow?                                     

Practice: Which of the following reacting molecules are able to produce products the fastest?

Practice: A chemist tries to burn sulfur in air and notices that it burns very slowly. Chemist then burns sulfur in pure oxygen and observes a brilliant blue flame. Which factor is affecting the reaction rate?
