A student was asked to provide an example of the effect of increasing temperature on reaction rate. The student gives an example of how sugar dissolves faster in warm tea than it does in iced tea. Is this example a valid choice? Explain.

    increasing temperature increases reaction rate http://www.chemguide.co.uk/physical/basicrates/temperature.html

    So what would I write for the answer? Just "increasing temperature increases reaction rate" ?

    hotter = faster. I mean that's the basic concept. I don't know how much you need to write to get that point across...

    Solubility increases with increasing temperature. So yes the rate would be faster, so this explains in general that increased temperature leads to increased reaction rate.
