Rate of consumption

Is there a difference between rate or consumption of a reactant and the rate a product is formed?

Re: Rate of consumption

It would be different only by stoichiometry

Re: Rate of consumption

Yes for rate of consumption it is going to be $\frac{-[R]}{\Delta T}$ where as rate of formation
for the product will be $\frac{[P]}{\Delta T}$.
