Math IA topics related to chemistry

I have to decide a Math IA topic, but I do not know what I should write. 

I want to choose something that is related to chemistry since that what I engage.

Are there any ideas or suggestions????

Thanks!

Take a look at the sections related to rates of reaction - calculus can be used to extend some of the ideas further.  There's also a relationship between chemistry and group theory, but this is dealing with relatively advanced math for high school level, so I don't know if it's a good idea.

Thanks for suggestions! I am thinking of modeling half-lives of nuclear decay :)

TBH radioactive decay is more physics-related than chemistry-related - it's covered in the physics syllabus, but not the chemistry one.  Just maybe keep that in mind for personal engagement if you do a math IA on it.

I was thinking of something related to modelling the formation of crystals, adjusting the variables. any thoughts?
