Temperature and kinetics

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

Temperature and kinetics

Do molecules have higher kinetic energy with higher temperatures?

Re: Temperature and kinetics

Yes. At higher temperatures, molecules move faster and bump into each other more, so essentially kinetic energy will be higher.

Re: Temperature and kinetics

Yes, with higher temperature molecules move faster, therefore creating more kinetic energy.

Re: Temperature and kinetics

As a substances absorbs heat the particles move faster so the average kinetic energy and therefore the temperature increases

Re: Temperature and kinetics

Yes, because at a higher temperature molecules move faster and have more collisions.
