    Could you please explain this

    1. Compare two chemical reactions,one requiring simultaneous collision of three molecules and the other requiring a collision between two molecules. Assuming all else is equal, which reaction should be faster? Why? and can you give an example.

    2. People submerged in very cold water and those that have drowned sometimes can be revived. However, people submerged in warmer water for an equivalent length of time usually cannot be revived. Why is this in terms of reaction rates?
