Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:
k = rate constant
A & B = reactants
x & y = reactant orders
Which of the following changes would decrease the rate of a reaction?
a. addition of a catalyst
b. increasing the concentration of reactants
c. decreasing the concentration of products
d. additional heat to an exothermic reaction
