Stoichiometric coefficients

Postby Adam_Alyafaie_1L » Mon Feb 20, 2017 12:14 am

Do stoichiometric coefficients affect the integrated rate law of reactions. For example say a first order reaction was 2A-->B+C would the two have any effect on the equation k[A] or ln[A]=-kt + ln[A]0?

Stoichiometric coefficients, or the number of moles of a product or reactant, affects K and Q values. When determining the exponents for each reactant in a rate law, you must analyze information given about the concentration of each reactant and its correlation to the corresponding rate.
