    because more of the reactants are being reacted off so it takes longer for each particle to find another particle to react with i think

    Yeah when the reactants have been used up, it takes more energy to produce another catalyst / it's harder for the particles to meet to react so the reaction rates are slower

    High concentration (at the start) = faster reaction, however this concentration reduces as the reaction proceeds, thus the reaction slows down accordingly.

    Assuming the reaction is not zero order with respect to all the reactants.
