    Why is the amount of energy that a particle has important to the rate of reaction and do all the particles in a particular reaction have the same amount of energy?

    Do you know the definition of activation energy?

    Have you studied the Maxwell Boltzmann distribution?

    The more energy a particle has, the faster it will travel. This means it is more likely to have collisions with other particles, and when it does collide the collision is more likely to be successful, and form a product. This means that having higher energy levels will increase the rate of reaction.

    No, not all particles have the exactly the same amount of energy, I don’t know exactly why.

    Hope this helps a little!
