Rate laws

Postby Anushi Patel 1J » Fri Mar 15, 2019 10:35 am

For all rate laws do we only look at one reactant at a time to simplify the math? For example, for the integrated and differential rate laws there is only one variable A that represents the concentration of reactant. When there is a chemical reaction with two reactants how do we know which one to focus on?

I think I remember my TA saying that we'll focus mainly on unimolecular reactions, since the integrated rate law becomes complicated when you introduce more than one reactant.
