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

### Re: how to calculate reaction rates

Use any formula from rate law, integrated rate law, and half-life. Taking a look at the examples in the textbook is pretty helpful.

Hello!

You could calculate the average rate (total change in concentration/change in time), or instantaneous rate (derivative, or slope of the tangent line to a point), or the unique rate, which helps you solve for the rate expressions (differentiated and integrated)

Hope this helps :)
