reaction occurs or how fast it occurs.
• There are certain things that can impact this
Factors that affect the rate of reaction
• What are some ways we can increase the
speed of a reaction?
• And how do these reasons relate to collision

Chemical nature of Reactants
some reactants are more/less reactive then others
Gold is much less
reactive then zinc
