Molecularity

Postby Nico Edgar 4L » Wed Mar 13, 2019 2:27 pm

For Molecularity, can we just assume it is the number of reactants? I know the definition, but is it just number of reactants?

It's not necessarily the number of reactants but the number of molecules involved in the collision during each step of the reaction mechanism.

Think of the order of the reaction when determining molecularity.
