Homogeneous Reaction Is a reaction in which all the reactants are in the same phase
Heterogeneous Reaction IS a reaction in which the reactants are present in different phases
Catalyst Is a chemical which can be added to a reaction to increase the rate of the reaction
Inhibitor Is a chemical which reduces a reaction rate by combining with a catalyst or one of the reactants in such a way as to prevent the reaction from occurring
Collision Theory States that molecules act as small, hard spheres which bounce off each other and transfer energy among themselves during their collision
Potential Energy Is the energy existing as a result of an object's position in space
Kinetic Energy Is the energy in which a system possesses because of movement within the system
Bond Energy Is the amount of energy required to break a bond between two atoms
Delta H The change in enthalpy during the course of the reaction
Endothermic Products have more energy than the reactants
Exothermic Products have less energy than the reactants
Activated Complex Is the top of the EA and is very unstable
Activation Energy Is the minimum potential energy required to change the reactants into the activated complex
Rate-Determining Step Is the slowest step in all of the reactions
