Factors That Influence Reaction Rate Under a specific set of conditions, every reaction has its own characteristic rate, which depends upon the chemical nature of the reactants. Four factors can be controlled during the reaction: 1. Concentration - molecules must collide to react; 2. Physical state - molecules must mix to collide; 3. Temperature - molecules must collide with enough energy to react; 4. The use of a catalyst.
