An integrated rate law represents the rate of a reaction with respect to time, so you can use it to find how quickly a reaction has progressed over a certain amount of time. A rate law only involves the initial rates.

The rate law is a differential equation that gives change in concentration of reactants with respect to time. When you integrate it, you get an equation that shows how reactants change as a direct result of changing the value of t.

In a rate law (differential rate law) rate is a function of concentration while in an integrated rate law the rate is a function of time.

An integrated rate law just shows the concentration of the reactant vs time while the differential rate law shows the rate of reaction vs time.

The rate law is a differential equation that only considers the initial rate, while the integrated rate laws can be used to discover how quickly a reaction has progressed over a certain amount of time.

An integrated rate law shows the concentration of a substance at a certain point in time. The rate law only shows the change in concentration.

The rate law shows the rate of the reaction plotted against time while the integrated rate law shows the actual concentration at certain times. If you think about it in terms of calculus and the definition of an integral, this makes sense.
