(i) Effect of total surface area When the size of a fixed mass of solid reactant is smaller, the _____________________ exposed to collision with the particles of the other reactants is _____________. Thus, the frequency of collision among the reacting particles at the surface of the solid reactant ____________ ___. This leads to an _________________ in the frequency of effective collision and hence, a _____________ rate of reactions. (ii) Effect of catalyst The presence of a catalyst in a chemical reaction allows the reaction to take place through an alternative path which requires a ______________ in activation energy which can be shown in the energy profile diagram. Thus, the colliding particles are able to achieve the activation energy. This means that the frequency of effective collision __________________and hence, a _______________ rate of reaction

WAJA F5 Chemistry 2010 (iii) Effect of temperature An increase in temperature will increase the _________________ of the reacting particles. This leads to the following two changes. Firstly, the particles move _________________ and collide more often with one another. Thus, the frequency of collision is ________________ Secondly, more colliding particles have ____________ energy which are enough to overcome the activation energy. Both these factors contribute to the _________________ frequency of effective collision and hence, a _____________ rate of reaction (iv) Effect of concentration and pressure An increase in the concentration of the solution of a reactant or in the pressure of gaseous reactants will result in an __________________ in the rate of reaction. Why? When the concentration of the solution of a reactant increases, the _________________ of particles per unit volume of this reactant also _______________. With more particles per unit volume of the solution, the frequency of collisions per unit time between the reacting particles __________________. Thus, the frequency of effective collision ________________ and hence, the rate of reaction becomes ___________________.
