The Collision Theory Link to Simulation of Molecular Motion 1. Matter is moving particles . 2. Temperature increases- particles move faster -more collisions -more collision energy . 3. Chemical reactions -bonds break -new bonds form 4. Collisions provide the energy.

Collision Theory Most collisions are not successful Collisions provide the energy required to break bonds. You need a collision to have a reaction.

The Collision Theory can be used to explain how the rate of a reaction can be changed. And that’s it! 3. Lower activation energy or Ea- low energy collisions are more effective. 2. Harder collisions - greater collision energy 1. More collisions Reaction rates can increase due to
