What are slow and fast reactions?

Asked by  | 9th Jun, 2008, 10:47: AM

Expert Answer:

The reaction rate or rate of reaction for a reactant or product in a particular reaction is intuitively defined as how fast a reaction takes place. For example, the oxidation of iron under the atmosphere is a slow reaction which can take many years, but the combustion of butane in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second.
