## Average rate of products and reactants

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

### Average rate of products and reactants

Is it always true that the average rate of products and the average rate of reactants are inversely related?

### Re: Average rate of products and reactants

I believe so, unless you came onto a reaction where product was being formed and the reactant concentration was not changing, which I dont believe could happen.
