The rate law is a differential equation. This means that it describes change in concentration of reactants per change in time. The rate law can be integrated to get an integrated rate equation that connects concentrations of reactants/products directly with time.
Differential rate laws will show rate as a function (the dependent variable) as a function of the reactant's concentration [R] (independent variable). Integrated rate laws will show reaction rate (dependent variable) as a function of time (independent variable).
