  1. mass-action principle

    The mass-action principle, also known as the law of mass action, is a principle or law in chemistry that states that the rate of a chemical reaction is directly proportional to the product of the concentrations of the reactants. This means that a reaction will proceed at a rate that depends on the concentration of the reactants, so if the concentration of one or more reactants is increased, the rate of reaction will also increase. The principle is used to help understand and predict the outcomes of chemical reactions.
