Pre-Equilibrium Approach

Postby Marissa Petchpradub 2F » Sun Feb 19, 2017 10:56 am

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

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.
