## overall reaction rate

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

### Re: overall reaction rate

The reaction rate for a given chemical reaction is a measure of the change in concentration of the reactants or products per unit time. Essentially, it tells us the speed, how fast or slow, of the reaction.

Depending on the order of said reaction one can figure out k and the concentration of the products at certain times
