## unique rate

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

### Re: unique rate

The unique rate is the rate of formation and disappearance of molecules in a reaction and it is divided by the coefficients. The unique rate will be the same for product and reactant.

The purpose of the unique rate is to be able to compare the rates of all the reactants to one another. It also shows the unique average rate of the overall reaction.

It can also tell you how fast a product will form or how fast a reactant will disappear in relation to other products or reactants
