Relationship between conc. of an acid and rate of reaction if temp. is not constant.

  1. Feb 23, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In the reaction between a reactive metal and an acid the rate depends on the concentration of the acid.

    In a perfect experiment with all variable kept constant the rate of reaction and the concentration would be directly proportional to each other.

    However if in the experiment you did not account for the exothermic nature of the reaction what would be the relationship between the 2 variables?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think its either proportional or exponential but I can't find anything about exponential relationships in my notes?
