## Unique Average Rate Question

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

### Unique Average Rate Question

Does the unique average rate imply that all for a reaction A+B--> C+D,
that the rate of decomposition for 1 mole of A is the same as the mole of decomposition for 1 mol of B?
So the fact that A and B are different species doesn't play a role in their rates of reaction?

### Re: Unique Average Rate Question

Yes that is correct. If B had 2 mols, then the unique rate would be multiplied by 2 for the rate of B
