## Rate Law

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

### Rate Law

Why do we need to conduct experiments to determine the rate law?

### Re: Rate Law

The experiments are necessary because they are the means by which we can compare concentrations and equilibrium constants in order to determine the rate law.
