Rate of reaction

What factors influence rate of reaction for a reaction reaching equilibrium? For example, does higher concentration influence rate of reaction to equilibrium?

Re: Rate of reaction

When the concentration of the reactants increase, the reaction rate increases and vice versa when the concentration of the reactants decrease.

Re: Rate of reaction

The main factors are catalyst (addition of a substance that doesn't take part in the reaction but speeds it up, e.g. by decreasing energy required to break bonds), pressure, temperature, and concentration. This topic is pretty fundamental so I'm sure Dr Lavelle will be covering it in the near future, most likely under kinetics. I'd say don't worry about it now :)
