SOP: The Thermite Reaction

This downloadable document is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and detailed method for demonstrating the thermite reaction.

This reaction is potentially a very hazardous activity; however the hazards it presents can be safely managed with suitable controls in place.

The accompanying example risk assessment should be used as a guide only and users should consider risks and safety measures in their local environment before proceeding.

Reaction rates - Year 10 CLE

This online resource is a Connected Learning Experience to assist Year 10 teachers teach the concept of reaction rates to their students.


Description: In this investigation, factors which affect reaction rates are investigated by conducting experiments. Students can then use their knowledge and understanding of reaction rates to take on the role of a process chemist charged with controlling the time taken for a specific reaction to take place.

Rates of reaction: Collision Theory Simulation

This downloadable resource simulates the effects of temperature on chemical reactions.

Specifically, the resource is a java application which allows students to model the effects of temperature on the rate of collisions in a closed system to see how this affects chemical reaction rates.

Users can alter the number of particles in their model and change the temperature of the reaction, and by observing the simulation they can see how the number of collisions are affected.

See the Additional Information section about how to access the resource.
