Instantaneous Rate vs. Unique Rate

Postby PeterTran1C » Thu Mar 01, 2018 11:03 pm

What is the difference between instantaneous rate and unique rate? I understand that instantaneous rate is the rate at a specific moment of time but what is unique rate and how is it relevant to rate laws?

A unique rate is a rate of appearance/disappearance of any of the species in a reaction divided by its stoichiometric coefficient, so it should be the same for each species. I think Lavelle mentioned that he would explain this in class tomorrow!
