## general rate laws

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

### general rate laws

Are general rate laws always equal to k[A]n[B]m[C]l?

That's a good model to write rate laws after. But remember that some rate laws may omit some reactants and of course, the exponents (in this case m,n, and l) will be different. :)

Thank is the general law, but as mentioned before the exponents would change depending on the order of the reactants.
