Surface Area • Exposing more of a reactant’s surface area will lead to faster reactions • This is because there will be more reactant particles contacting the other reactants • Surface area can be increased by breaking down a chunk of a reactant into smaller pieces or powder • A powdered form of a substance always gives the most surface area IV. Concentration (Mol/L) • Means how much stuff per Liter of space • If concentration is increased. then more collisions between particles will result • More collisions=faster reaction rate • In general: increase concentration. Pressure • Only affects reactions involving gases • Increasing pressure increases the concentration of a gas • More in less space or smaller volume • This results in a faster reaction rate • (Only affects gases of different moles) V. Nature of the Reactants • Covalent or organic (containing C) substances react slower than ionic • Because they have more bonds that must be broken as they react • Ionic substances react more quickly • Have no true bonds • Ions held together by electrostatic force II. as the number of effective collisions between particles increases.Smith 28 • In general.
