Problems

Chemical reactions do not occur instantaneously. They take time, from just a few milliseconds to what has been called “geological” time, which may be more than a million years. The quick reactions may be explosive, while the long-term reactions may be extremely inconvenient.

Chemical reaction kinetics is the study of the speed of chemical reactions. Just as kinetics refers to movement, chemical reaction kinetics refers ...
