Magnesium + hydrochloric acid


I want to know about particle exchange when magnesium reacts with hydrochloric acid. Also why does the reaction speed up when the molarity is increased?

Reactions take place when molecules collide. When you increase the molarity, the rate of collisions increase, because there are more acid molecules to collide with the magnesium. The increased collisions result in a quicker reaction.

Molarity is the concentration of a substance. in this case hydrochloric acid. the higher this is the lower that is.
