## Difference Between K and Kprime [ENDORSED]

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

### Difference Between K and Kprime

In the derivations of the integrated rate laws for zero order, first order, and second order equations, what is the difference between k and kprime? Thanks.

k is the rate constant for the forward reaction while k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction
