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

### Pre-Equilibrium Approach

Can someone please explain page 73 in the course reader? How did we know that step 2 was the slow step?

### Re: Pre-Equilibrium Approach

We know that step two is going to be the slow step because there is going to be a buildup of the intermediate from step one; therefore, because step one is progressing so quickly, there will be a bottle-neck effect.
