When two reactants are placed with each other, the molecules move around rapidly and bump into each other.
However, in order for them to react, they must collide at a specific speed (energy) and in the correct orientation. In this case, they are able to exchange a molecule if the collision is successful.
Since the orientation and speed of molecules is random, catalysts like this one can help increase the reaction rate.
When poured into a solution with two reactants...
the catalyst orients the molecules and lowers the energy required for them to react and exchange the molecule.
This allows the reaction to happen much faster, as most reactions will not depend on chance in order to occur anymore.
