## Rate Constant K

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

### Rate Constant K

A lot of questions on practice quizzes ask us to find the rate constant k for the reaction that is given. Is there a general equation to find the rate constant k? If not, how would you calculate for the rate constant k?

### Re: Rate Constant K

First, you must find what order the reaction is. From there, you can plug in information and solve for k as long as you are given information on initial concentrations, final concentration, and time. You can also find k using half life equations as long as you know the order.

### Re: Rate Constant K

K= [products]^n/[reactants]^m where n and m are the respective number of moles
