## rate law vs integrated rate law

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

Rate Law is an expression that gives the reaction rate in terms of the concentration of species at any time.

An Integrated Rate Law gives the concentration at any time after the start of the reaction.

Integrated rate law gives you the slope of the tangent at any point in the graph. In other words, it tells you how fast/slow the reaction is going at that point.
