Characteristics of Chemical Reactions

  1. Production of new materials with properties that are different from the starting materials
  2. Some reactions absorb energy, while others release energy
  3. To make a reaction occur faster you can:
    • Add heat
    • Add catalyst (enzyme)
    • Increase the surface area
    • Stir the solution
  4. To make a reaction occur slower you can:
    • Decrease the heat
    • Add an inhibitor
    • Decrease the surface area
