If you were doing an experiment, why does concentrations of reactants affect your reaction rate, would it be because of being directly related or something else?

as concentration increases, the equilibrium reaction compensates to the other side, making more of the other chemical

Chemical reaction occur as a result of collisions between molecules of reactant. More specifically, the collisions have to be of proper orientation and have sufficient energy. Generally speaking, however, the more collisions there are between reactants, the more reactions will occur. It stands to reason that the presence of more molecules of reactant (i.e. higher concentration) will result in more collisions and, therefore, an increased reaction rate.
