Why was neon mad at fluorine? Because it was always overreacting! Science scholars discover how scientists control chemical reactions thanks to a video from the JFR Science playlist. The example-filled resource explains why not all particles react all of the time, collision theory, and other aspects of reaction rate.
- Use the video to bridge the gap between chemical reactions and activation energy
- Show the resource prior to a reaction rates lab
- Pupils should have a basic understanding of concentration and chemical reactions
- The soda can scenario makes for an impactful demonstration of how to control reaction rates
- Narrator describes each factor that affects reaction rate using humorous examples
