Enter the change in quantity of the substance during the reaction and the time into the calculator to determine the reaction velocity.

## 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?

Definition:

A reaction velocity describes the rate of change of a parameter, such as mass, during a chemical reaction.

## How to Calculate Reaction Velocity?

Example Problem:

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
