IS2512 Introduction to Reaction Rates
Chemical reactions vary greatly. For example, some chemicals react extremely fast like an explosion, while others, like rusting metal, can react over a long period of time. Understanding the factors that influence the rate of a reaction allows the scientist to speed up or slow down reactions as desired. This kit has been designed to introduce students to the concepts of reaction rates through a series of experiments demonstrating the impact of concentration, heat, surface area and catalysts. Kit contains enough materials for 10 groups. Teacher’s manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
