Unique Average Rate vs. Average Rate

Postby Jason Muljadi 2C » Tue Feb 27, 2018 6:08 pm

Is there a difference between these two terms or are they interchangeable?

A unique rate is a rate of appearance/disappearance of any of the species in a reaction divided by its stoichiometric coefficient; when average rate is calculated, the coefficient is not taken into account.

The unique rate relates to the production/consumption of one mole of a substance substance (you get this by dividing by its stoichiometric coefficient) while average rate is the overall rate for the whole reaction over a period of time.

The unique average rate of change is essentially the average rate of change divided by the stoichiometric coefficient.
