        Kinetics and Nuclear Chemistry | Chemistry: Unit 12

        This half-hour video explores the rates of reactions in kinetics and nuclear chemistry and how using catalysts can lead to cheaper, more effective, and more sustainable drug production processes. From an instantaneous explosion to the slow rusting of iron, the rates at which different chemical reactions proceed can vary tremendously depending on several factors, including temperature and concentration. Sometimes, like with the rotting of food, chemists want to slow down reaction rates. But often, the goal is to speed them up—and one way to do this is to use a catalyst. We will also discover how the rates of some reactions, like nuclear decay, are unchangeable, and how scientists take advantage of this, using PET scans to reveal the presence of disease.
