Reaction Velocity Formula
The following equation is used to calculate the Reaction Velocity.
RV = CP / T
- Where RV is the reaction velocity (quantity/time)
- CP is the change in the parameter/quantity being analyzed
- T is the time (seconds)
What is a Reaction Velocity?
A reaction velocity describes the rate of change of a parameter, such as mass, during a chemical reaction.
How to Calculate Reaction Velocity?
The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Reaction Velocity.
First, determine the change in the parameter/quantity being analyzed . In this example, the change in the parameter/quantity being analyzed is found to be 50 kg.
Next, determine the time. For this problem, the time is found to be 5 seconds.
Finally, calculate the Reaction Velocity using the formula above:
RV = CP / T
RV = 50 / 5
RV = 10 kg /s
