## Knowing Rate Laws

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

### Knowing Rate Laws

Will we be told what rate law is implicated for the quiz or do we need to figure that out ourselves by analyzing the units used in the problem?

### Re: Knowing Rate Laws

Either we will be told in the problem which rate it is and then we will the corresponding equations. Otherwise, we will be given a table of different experiments that include rates and the concentrations on the reactants and we will need to figure out which order it is.
