## drivations

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

### drivations

Will derivations be included in the test and final?

We are given the rate law equations on the equation sheet on the test and final, so I doubt that we will be asked to derive the equation. However, knowing how to derive the equations may increase your understanding of rate laws and would be nice to know in case we are asked to derived them. While I wouldn't center my studying around deriving the equations, I would suggest going over them once or twice.

Also one the equation sheet, it won’t tell you what orde the derivations or integrations are so make sure to know which one is first, second, and zero orders.
