Reaction Rate Units

Postby Isabel Gutierrez 2G » Mon Feb 20, 2017 9:43 pm

Do the units for reaction rates differ according the the order of the reaction ?

No, the units for reaction rates do not change. They remain as M/sec or M/min (depending on what unit you use to measure time)
On the other hand, the units for rate constants (k) do change depending on the order of the reaction.
