Define Chemical Kinetics

Chemical kinetics is that branch of chemistry which deals with the study of the speeds or the rates of chemical reactions, the factors affecting the rates of the reactions and the mechanism by which the reactions proceed. It concerns itself with the measurement of rates of reactions proceeding under the given conditions of temperature, pressure and concentration.

The reaction which belongs to the chemical kinetics is those which are neither very slow neither very fast. For example:

Hydrolysis of ethyl acetate:
CH3COOC2H5+ H2O + H+—->CH3COOH + C2H5OH

Decomposition of ammonium nitrite:
NH4NO2 + heat —————–> 2 H2O + N2
