Rate Law being affected by product

Postby mendozayael_2H » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:38 pm

When should the concentration of the product be considered when determining the rate law of a reaction? Or does this have something to do with whether you want just the forward or reverse reaction? This came up with overall orders in ch15.3

experimentally we usually only consider the forward reaction. the example in the book with the reaction with ozone and O2, they consider the reverse reaction because in the atmosphere there is no way to isolate the products so the products are able to turn back into reactants and affect the rate law

You would usually only consider the forward reaction.
