This song explains effective collisions and how to affect reaction rate through changing the number of effective collisions or changing the mechanism. All music and lyrics copyright 2009 by Mark Rosengarten. All rights reserved.

Lyrics:

RATE! RATE!

Engineers have a great big need
To control chemical reactions speed
Fast or slow, which is to be their fate
How can we change the reaction rate?

Reacting molecules do collide
Angle and energy will decide
If the reaction will proceed at last
And if that reaction will be slow or fast

Its rateRATE! Of reaction
Reactants form products at a certain speed
Its rateRATE! Of reaction
How do we get it to serve our needs?

Add or remove some steps
Make more collisions or less
Slow down or speed it on up!

Some reactions happen way too fast
They can end in an explosive blast
To slow it down you can add some steps
Use an inhibitor, then rate is less

Lower concentration or the temperature
Fewer collisions over time occur
Lower pressure if you have a gas
Less surface area for a solid mass

Its rateRATE! Of reaction
Reactants form products at certain speeds
Its rateRATE! Of reaction
How do we get it to serve our needs?

Add or remove some steps
Make more collisions or less
Slow down or speed it on up!

If a reaction is too slow for you
Here are a couple of things to do
Add a catalyst, some steps remove
Get that reaction running really smooth

Make more collisions happen over time
Concentration and temperature increase is fine!
Raise the pressure on your gaseous friends
Or crush a solid, you will meet your ends!

Its rateRATE! Of reaction
Reactants form products at a certain speed
Its rateRATE! Of reaction
How do we get it to serve our needs?

Its rateRATE! Of reaction
Change the mechanism, change your steps
Its rateRATE! Of reaction
How many collisions happen, more or less

Change your reactions speed
Make it fit your need
Slow down or speed it on up!

RATE!
