Reaction rate

Postby David Sarkissian 1K » Sat Mar 16, 2019 9:40 pm

Is there an easy way to tell which reaction is fast and which is slow in a a series of reactions if we are not told in advance? Are there any tell-tale signs that give it away?

Typically, reactions that are termolecular are slow since it is less likely for three molecules to collide with the right amount of energy for the reaction to occur.
