US real gross domestic product (GDP) grew faster than initially thought in Q2.

7.3 Is the rate of reaction very slow?

If the equilibrium position is very favourable, then the reason why Reaction 8.1 fails to occur at 525 Â°C must be that its rate is very slow. Usually, a reasonable response would be to increase the temperature yet further, but the structure and economy of the car gives us little scope to do this. The alternative is to use a catalyst, which leaves the equilibrium constant unchanged, while speeding the reaction up.
