To add on, the general rate law is a differential equation that describes the change in concentration of reactant over change in time. By using calculus, you can integrate the general rate laws to get an integrated rate equation that relates concentrations with time directly.

think of driving in a car (this is example used in textbook).
general rate law is like saying you took an hour trip, and ended up driving 30 miles. your average (general) speed for the entire hour time period is 30 mph.
BUT lets say in order to get around a road obstruction, you had to slow down for a small stretch on the road. In that instant (integrated rate law), you were going 20 mph.
