Catalysis is an acceleration or retardation of the rate of a chemical reaction, brought about by the addition of a substance (the catalyst ) to the reaction medium. The catalyst, usually present in small amounts, is not consumed in the reaction.Read more: Catalysis and Catalysts - Chemistry Encyclopedia - reaction, water, examples, metal, gas, name, molecule, atom http://www.chemistryexplained.com/Bo-Ce/Catalysis-and-Catalysts.html#ixzz0vWZ6VTAf Catalysis is an acceleration or retardation of the rate of a chemical reaction, brought about by the addition of a substance (the catalyst ) to the reaction medium.

Explain why water's ability to absorb heat is important to aquatic organisms and to life on earth generally. Water has a high heat capacity so it can absorb a lot of heat. This is important to...
