  1. The Effect of Concentration on the Rate of Reaction.

    be more hydrochloric acid molecules for the particles on the surface of the marble chips to collide with. Therefore there will be a greater proportion of hydrochloric acid molecules with activation energy. This reaction is exothermic because the energy of the product is lower than the energy of the reactants

  2. How the effect of concentration affects the rate of a chemical reaction

    The reaction between Magnesium and Hydrochloric acid is an exothermic reaction. The heat produced gives the H+ ions more kinetic energy so they will be moving around faster and the collisions between them and the Mg atoms will be harder so there will be more chance of a successful collision.
