### exercise 15.17

for c) in this question, why can we use the initial rate for the product G to calculate the rate constant?
quantitatively, what does the general rate law equals to?
What are the differences between initial rate, general rate law, instantaneous rate, and unique rate of reaction?

### Re: exercise 15.17

The reaction rate is the change in concentration of one of the reactants or products at a selected stage of the reaction divided by the time interval over which the change takes place. The unique average rate of the reaction is the average rate divided by the stoichiometric coefficients, so the unique average rates are the same for all species in the reaction. the instantaneous rate of the reaction is the rate of the reaction at the time of interest and is the reaction rate that is referred to in the book. The initial rate of reaction is the instantaneous rate at the start of a reaction. The initial rate of a reaction is proportional to the initial concentration by the rate constant.
