The Boltzmann Distribution

For reaction to take place, 3 things must happen – A collision must occur. Both particles must have enough energy. The particles must have the correct orientation. The rate of reaction can be increased by – increasing the concentration/pressure, temperature and surface area as the number of collision increases. increasing the temperature as more particles […]

C2 3.1 – 2 Definitions

Enthalpy means thr energy content that is stored in a chemical system. Exothermic refers to a reaction in which the enthalpy of the products is smaller than the enthalpy of the reactants, resulting in heat loss to the surroundings. Endothermic refers to a reaction in which the enthalpy of the products is bigger than the […]
