## coefficient of product

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

### coefficient of product

when finding the rate law and after you solve for the intermediate do you always put the coefficient of the product?

### Re: coefficient of product

You can directly use the coefficients of a balanced reaction for the rate law of an intermediate equation.
