If you find the rate constant on a table but the rxn you have is multiplied by 2 of the table rxn, would you mulitply the Kr (rate constant) by 2, or raise it to the 2 power? Or is Kr independent of the reaction?
Because k represents the rate constant, the value of k will never change for a unique reaction. That is to say, k itself will stay stagnant for that particular reaction. "Multiplying the table" by a factor of two would just change the concentration of the reactants, which would change the rate of the reaction, but not the rate constant.
