    Collision Theory Paper

    • 911 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The collision theory states that, for a reaction to occur, particles must collide with the correct orientation with sufficient orientation for a reaction to occur (Compound Chem, 2016). This minimum energy with which molecules must be moving in order for a collision to result in a chemical reaction is known as the activation energy (Boundless Chemistry, 2015). This activation energy barrier must be crossed before reactants are converted to products. The activation complex is a temporary structure of particles, with the ability to become reactants or products (F. Senese, 2010). The collision theory helps explain why some chemical reactions proceed slowly, whilst others fast. Concentration, temperature, pressure, and catalysts are factors which modify the rate of a reaction (CDLI, 2007). These external stresses ultimately increase the number of collisions within the system, therefore increasing the reaction rate. However a catalyst provides an alternative route for the reaction, with lower activation energy. This means that particle collisions need less kinetic energy in order for a reaction to occur, in turn increasing the rate of the reaction (Boundless Chemistry,…

    When the collision took place, Carl Young’s van collided with Mary’s Volkswagen in which she was pushed into the intersection and Young’s van followed close behind. This collision is classified as a perfectly inelastic collision. This is a perfectly inelastic because this collision is defined as when two objects “ stick together after the collision, meaning it follows in the same direction (Perfectly Inelastic Collisions). Other than the speeds and velocities and all of the calculations of this…

    if one object loses momentum the other object must gain an equal amount of momentum. An isolated system is one which the only forces are between the bodies that are colliding or exploding, no outside forces must be acting. (M.Mann, 2013) Investigative Question: Is momentum conserved during the collision of a brick and a trolley? Hypothesis: The momentum of the trolley before the collision will be equal to the…
