Rate of Reaction
The rate of a reaction is the speed at which a chemical reaction happens. If a reaction has a low rate, that means the molecules combine at a slower speed than a reaction with a high rate. Some reactions take hundreds, maybe even thousands, of years while others can happen in less than one second. If you want to think of a very slow reaction, think about how long it takes plants and ancient fish to become fossils (carbonization). The rate of reaction also depends on the type of molecules that are combining. If there are low concentrations of an essential element or compound, the reaction will be slower.
There is another big idea for rates of reaction called collision

Part A: Oxidation Reduction Reaction
The weight of the copper starting material was 0.107g. After I weighted the copper, I wrapped the turning into a small ball and place it into a 150 mL beaker. Then, I measured 8 mL of 6 M nitric acid, HNO3, into a 10 ml graduated cylinder. Afterwards, I then slowly added the 6 M HNO3 into the beaker containing the copper. Then, I cover the beaker with a watch glass and observe the reaction. As I was observing the reaction, I

Enzymes is biologic polymer which can catalyse the chemical reaction. They can’t be destroyed, used up, or permanently changed while they involve in a reaction therefore the physical changes of enzymes will not be affected in a reaction. On the other hand excluding the catalytic of RNA molecules or ribozymes, enzymes are also made from protein. Additionally, every enzymes have their own specific function which makes them work more efficiently. Enzymes are also classify into several classification.

Energy keeps all living organisms alive, as they need a continual supply of energy to function in order to survive. Some of these processes are continuous such as, metabolism, which is the chemical reactions which occur in the body, these occur by using or releasing energy from chemical substances. Another continuous process which use energy is the transporting of molecules in order for them to break down, and to build new ones. The breakdown of large molecules into their simpler forms to release energy is known as catabolism, for example, when glucose is used in a cell to release energy. And the opposite reaction, is called anabolism. This is when energy is used to build complex structures

The hydrogen attached to the singly bonded carbon attached to to oxygen has a shift of 3.30 ppm. The other phenyl rings have hydrogens with chemical shifts of 7.36 – 7.38 ppm. However it is difficult to ascertain which diastereomer, R,R or R,S predominates since indications to both are seen. Thus a mix of the diastereomers is seen.
This reaction is divided into two parts. In the first part acetone, L – proline and 4 – nitrobenzaldehyde are reacted to give (R)-4-hydroxy-4-(4-nitrophenyl)butan-2-one as the major product along with (S)-4-hydroxy-4-(4-nitrophenyl)butan-2-one

increasing, especially in oil and gas industries. The most common solutions are Hard Cr and Quench-Polish-Quench (QPQ) processes. However, these two processes affect the environment adversely. As alternatives, coating layers can be introduced to metal samples. Coatings can be done with or without electricity. If electricity is involved, the process is called electroplating. It is done by immersing the sample that is going to be coated together with an anode of the coating metal in an electrolyte containing salts of the metal to be plated. The other coating method that relies on chemical reaction instead of the surge of current is termed electroless plating.

Humans have figured out how to use the power of the sun for energy. Using Solar panels containing semiconductors, we can turn the sun into electricity, a very popular form of energy. In this way, photosynthesis and solar cells are similar, both using the suns light to create a form of energy. The type of energy created, however, is where one difference comes into play.

This process involves the use of catalysts and transesterification to produce biodiesel. There are two processes involved here. Depolymerization which creates renewable diesel and the other one is hydrotreating which produces green diesel or hydrogenation derived renewable diesel. Hydrotreating involved the use of hydrogen and catalysts.

Waste water quality indicators:
Any oxidizable material present in a natural waterway or in an industrial wastewater will be oxidized both by biochemical (bacterial) or chemical processes. The result is that the oxygen content of the water will be decreased. Basically, the reaction for biochemical oxidation may be written as:
Oxidizable material + bacteria + nutrient + O2 → CO2 + H2O + oxidized inorganics such as NO3- or SO4--
Oxygen consumption by reducing chemicals such as sulfides and nitrites is typified as follows:

What is Stress? Webster defines: It a physical, chemical, or emotional factor that causes’s bodily or mental tension and may be a factor in disease causation. Stress is also feeling that’s created when we react to a particular event. It something we are not aware of, and sometime cannot control. Some would define stress as our reaction to the ups and downs of everyday life. Others might define stress as worry, pressure, tension, etc. Stress is defined as the non-specific response of the body to any demand placed on it, by Dr. Hans Seyle. In other words, anything that causes a "change or a reaction" in your body is called stress.

We need a constant supply of vitamin C in our diet as the human body cannot store vitamin C because it is not a fat-soluble vitamin and where there is excess vitamin C, it is removed from the body through the urine. As well as this, vitamin C is very important in the growth and repair of tissues. It plays a crucial role in the healing of wounds and the repair and maintenance of teeth, cartilage and bones.

Ozone layer is a deep layer in the stratosphere, encircling the earth that has large amounts of ozone in it. Ozone is a colourless gas found in the upper atmosphere of the earth that is formed when oxygen molecules absorbs ultraviolet, and undergo a chemical reaction known as photo dissociation or photolysis.
In this process, a single molecule of oxygen breaks down into two oxygen atoms.The free oxygen atom[o],then combines with an oxygen molecule and forms a molecule of ozone.The ozone molecule in turn absorbs ultraviolet rays between 310-200nn[nanometer] wavelength and thereby prevent these harmful

when the glucose molecule is taken apart. The energy released from this process is larger than the process of fermentation. In this process about 36 ATP molecules result for each glucose molecule.
Yeast can make energy from sugar by the process of aerobic respiration or fermentation. During aerobic respiration there needs to be oxygen present. The chemical formula for this is [pic]. If there is no oxygen available (anaerobic conditions) yeast can use the process of fermentation (Manning, 2001). This process also uses sugar, but there is no oxygen,, so the chemical formula is changed to[pic]. Both formulas are similar because they both produce ATP and carbon dioxide (Manning, 2001

This was done to shelter themselves against future detriments. Each subterranean settlement is what we call in modern times a city, in which was divided to house a thousand families each. They also stockpiled essentials of life to maintain. So greatly advanced scientifically the Lizard people developed a chemical solution that melted solid bedrock to bore out the tunnels and rooms of their subsurface shelters. This was done without removing any earth and rock. They also developed a cement far stronger than any
