An Experiment To Demonstrate How a Catalyst Affects the Rate of a Reaction.
Copper, Christine L.; Koubeck, Edward
Journal of Chemical Education, v76 n12 p1714-15 Dec 1999
Describes a chemistry experiment that allows students to calculate rates of reaction, orders of reaction, and activation energies. The activity demonstrates that to increase a reaction's rate, a catalyst need only provide any additional pathway for the reaction, not necessarily a pathway having lower activation energy. (WRM)
