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

### Stoichiometric Coefficient

So is the stoichiometric coefficient always gonna be in a fraction with 1 over itself?

I am not sure but based on what we have seen in class, then yes.

Keep in mind that this is only for the general rate law so far. On the equation sheet, it does seem like the coefficient is mostly the denominator. I could be thinking about the concentration instead though so definitely check to be sure.
