## 7A 15

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

### 7A 15

How do you know if something is independent of the rate law?

It's independent if you see that the changes in concentration don't affect the rate. If you compare Experiments 1 and 4, you can see that only C changes in concentration, but the rate stays the same.

A reactant would be independent of the rate if the initial rate does not get affected with respect to a change in the concentration of that reactant.

you can tell by seeing that a change in the concentration of the reactant has no affect on the rate law. this means the reactant is to the zeroth order and is independent of the rate law.

It's independent if changing its concentration does not affect the rate of the reaction.
