## stopped flow experiment

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

### stopped flow experiment

can someone help explain the stopped flow technique to measuring the rate of a really quick reaction? After reading about it in the textbook and looking at the diagram I still don't understand.

### Re: stopped flow experiment

In stopped flow reactions, reactants are first forced from syringes into a mixing chamber. A sensor measures the kinetics of this reaction.
