## Stoichiometric coefficients

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

### Stoichiometric coefficients

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?

### Re: Stoichiometric coefficients

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.
