I have a few questions regarding rate and rate constant. I am wondering what effect certain concentrations, temperature, etc., has on rate and rate constant. Would be of great help if you can clarify this for me!
If a concentration was halved (and all other factors remained the same), does that mean rate would decrease? If instead the concentration was doubled, I would assume that it would also double. For rate, if the temperature of the solution decreased, does that mean that it would also decrease since it means it would take less time?
For rate constant, if the concentration was halved, I think there would be no effect (because concentration effects rate only). But, what if the concentration was doubled, does that also mean that there's no effect or would the rate constant decrease? For rate constant, let's say the ionic strength of the solution increased. Does that mean that the rate constant decreases?
Thanks for clarifying!
