Before a chemical reaction reaches equilibrium,
A. the reaction rates of the reactants and products increase.
B. the reaction rate of the reactants increases and the reaction rate of the products decreases.
C. the reaction rates of the reactants and products decrease.
D. the reaction rate of the reactants decreases and the reaction rate of the products increases.
I am so confused with all of these answers, can you please explain to me what each of the means and give me a hint go which on it could be?
Thanks S

  • Chemistry -

    reading over it again I think it may be D is that correct?

  • Chemistry -

    I agree the answers are confusing but your answer of D is correct.

  • Chemistry -

    D is the true answer if u draw conc.in the y-axis and time in the x-axis for reactants ans product u will see that conc. of reactants decrease and conc. of the product increase till the equlilibrium point and rate is directly proportional to conc. thx alot
