## Rate Law

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

### Rate Law

Does every reaction have a rate of formation and combustion? Or can certain rates be ignored? I feel like I've seen a problem with a reaction that didn't end up giving a rate of combustion, just formation.

### Re: Rate Law

For every reaction, there should be a rate of formation and a rate of consumption.
