## Rate Laws

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

### Rate Laws

Are we expected to know how to get from the differential rate laws to the integrated rate law for the orders, 0, 1, and 2?

### Re: Rate Laws

The integrated rate laws are given on the formula sheet, so you wouldn't need to know the exact derivations.

You might want to have a basic understanding of how the equations are derived. You mainly just need to know that you set the rate law in the form k[A]^n equal to the rate law in the form -d[A]/dt and solve.

They will give you derivations on the test i believe.

### Re: Rate Laws

The rate laws will be given but will not be labeled which order it is. I recommend familiarizing yourself with the derivative and integrTed rate laws so you can recognize which is for which order of reaction.

### Re: Rate Laws

I'm still confused on why we apply rate laws to certain questions. Can someone explain what a rate law is and why it is useful?

### Re: Rate Laws

The integrated rate laws are given on the formula sheet, but I think you should still have a general idea about how to integrate to get them.

### Re: Rate Laws

Pretty sure they're given but it's good to know how to do it yourself so you understand the concept
