Chemical Kinetics

In chemical kinetics, we study about the rate chemical reactions and their mechanism.

Factors that affect a chemical reaction: 1. Concentration, 2. Temperature, 3. Pressure, 4. Catalyst

Rate of reaction: If we have a reaction as follows:

then:

Average rate of decreasing of the reactant=R/t

Instantaneous rate of increasing the product=P/t

Instantaneous rate of decreasing of the reactant=d[R]/dt

Instantaneous rate of increasing of the product=d[P]/dt

where [R] and [P] are the concentrations of reactant and product respectively.
