. Why does an increase in temperature favor an increase in the speed of a reaction?

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The reason as to why an increase in temperature favor an increase in the speed of a reaction is to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

The collision that takes place between the reactant molecules is one of the important factors for the occurrence of a reaction.

The additional amount of the energy that is required by the reactant molecules so that they attain energy equal to the threshold energy is known as activation energy.

Explanation of Solution

The factors that affect the rate of a chemical reaction are:

  1. Concentration of reactants.
  2. Temperature.
  3. Catalyst.

More successful collisions are produced due to an ...
