How fast will a chemical reaction occur? If a reaction is too slow, it may not be practical. If the reaction is too fast, it may explode. Measuring and controlling reaction rates makes it possible for chemists and engineers to make a variety of products, everything from antibiotics to fertilizers, in a safe and economical manner. The purpose of this experiment is to investigate how the rate of a reaction can be measured and how reaction conditions affect reaction rates.
