Online simulation: Kinetic theory applied to Chemical reactions (PhET/UC Boulder)

Posted on August 17, 2010 by


Interactive simulation of what chemical reactions look like at the microscopic level.

Explore what makes a reaction happen by colliding atoms and molecules. Design experiments with different reactions, concentrations, and temperatures. When are reactions reversible? What affects the rate of a reaction?
