What does the unique rate measure?

The unique rate refers to the unique average rate of reaction.

You can calculate the unique rate by dividing the rate of reaction of a specific species by its coefficient. This is the unique rate of reaction, and will be the same rate if you use any of the species in the reaction.

the unique rate produces the same rate no matter which species you use.

A unique rate is a rate of appearance/disappearance of any of the species in a reaction divided by its stoichiometric coefficient. A unique rate will be the same for each reactant or product. When you calculate the average rate, the coefficient is not taken into the account, so the average rate can be different from the unique rate. Directly quoted from a chem_mod.
