initial vs overall units

Postby inlovewithchemistry » Mon Mar 11, 2019 6:42 pm

are units for initial concentration mol/L*s vs units for overall rate constant L/mol*s?
how do we know when to use one or the other?

I believe the units for the rate constant will depend on the order of the reaction. For example, if the reaction is first order, the units for k will be 1/s.
