Hello, I am a student from Fresno, Ca. I am currently taking chemistry for my pre-req for the Nursing program. I have to do a power point discussing how the Rate of a Chemical Reaction is related in my Nursing career? I have tried to get a hold of local nurses in a hospital setting with no luck. If you have any information that can be useful for me to use please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
(underscore between patrice and keo). Thank you so much, I hope I can get some help. -Patrice, future Nurse

First, it might help to think about varying types of reactions in general, and then focus on what factors influence the rates of those reactions. Think about entropy, enthalpy, energy change, what it takes to cause a reaction, and all that.
Sometimes it helps to think "big picture" first, before you go into specific physiological processes. If you haven't had A/P yet, this project could be a bit more challenging.
If you've had A/P, you might focus on metabolic processes (such as Krebs) or gas exchange in the lungs and systemically.
Edit to add: I now see Esme12 already pretty much said the same thing, only a bit more succinctly than I did.
K.I.S.S. Keep it simple silly.....I don't like the word stupid.
