That's why higher concentrations generally leads to higher reaction rates because there are more reactants to collide with each other and have the reaction proceed. (More particles= more chances of collisions.)

Work Step by Step

The main idea behind collision theory is that the way in which molecules collide with each other will determine the reaction rate. If there are more collisions between molecules, there will be a greater chance of allowing for the reaction to occur.
