reaction rate vs. unique reaction rate

Postby josephyim1L » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:43 pm

What is the difference between reaction rate (change in reaction/change in time) vs. unique reaction rate?

As of what I understood, a reaction rate is just the average change of concentration over time while a unique reaction rate is that value divided by the stoichiometric coefficient.

Reaction rate doesn't take into account stochiometric coefficients but unique reaction rate (specific to each reactant/product) does.

unique reaction rate takes into account stoichiometric coefficients, or the order of the reaction
