Chemical Changes and Reactions

A chemical reaction can occur by two means-

  1. Reactant+ Reagent → Product
  2. Reactant + Reagent → Intermediate → Product

A reaction can take place only when –

  1. The molecules collide among themselves.
  2. The energy of the reactants should cross the threshold energy by absorbing activation energy.
  3. The molecules should orient themselves in a proper orientation.
