QUESTION

# What happens during a chemical reaction?

Molecules collide and form or break bonds.

Chemical reactions as we know them are subject to the . According to the collision theory 2 molecules must collide and interact with each other in order to have a reaction.

All chemical reactions are driven by molecule collision, from Glycolysis to mRNA Synthesis.

If there was a specific reaction you had in mind I could go into much greater detail as to the collisions that must take place to complete the reaction.

An example is the formation of H_2O in the following reaction,

2H^+ + O^-2 -> H_2O

The reaction shows 2H^+ ions freely moving about in the environment until they both come in contact with an O^-2 ion. are formed and our complete chemical reaction produces water.
