# Rate of Reaction I

Mind Map

Definition
What is rate of reaction?
1. Rate of reaction is defined as the change in the amount of reactants or products per unit time.
2. It means ‘how fast is the reaction’ or 'the speed of the reaction'.
• Fast Reaction  High rate
• Slow Reaction  Low rate
3. Therefore,
Quantity change of reactants/products
Rates of reaction =
Total time for the reaction

Example 1
In a chemical reaction, 2.5g of calcium carbonate
react completely with excess hydrochloric acid to
produce 600cm3 of carbon dioxide gas in 1.5
minutes. Find the rate of reaction in term of
a. decreasing mass of calcium carbonate
b. increasing volume of carbon dioxide gas
produced
