Unique Rate of Reactions

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

Re: Unique Rate of Reactions

The unique rate of a reaction is the rate a particular species is consumed or formed divided by its coefficient in the chemical reaction.

Re: Unique Rate of Reactions

All the unique rates of reactions for all the reactants and products in a reaction are the same.

Re: Unique Rate of Reactions

Keep in mind that we calculate unique rates because the average rates can be different depending on the time interval you are calculating for. When you calculate the unique rate, the coefficient is taken into account, so you have a more accurate answer.
