    As you increase the temperature the rate of reaction increases. As a rough approximation, for many reactions happening at around room temperature, the rate of reaction doubles for every 10°C rise in temperature. You have to be careful not to take this too literally. It doesn't apply to all reactions. Even where it is approximately true, it may be that the rate doubles every 9°C or 11°C or whatever. The number of degrees needed to double the rate will also change gradually as the temperature increases. http://www.chemguide.co.uk/physical/basicrates/temperature.html

    what about the time required for reactions?

    Well, in heat the reaction will go faster.

    If you heat a substance, the particles move faster and so collide more frequently. That will speed up the rate of reaction.
