The tangent line, or more importantly, its slope, is the instantaneous rate of change of the dependent variable (concentration) with respect to the independent variable (time). It's basically the concept of a derivative. The derivative is the function with respect to time that we use to calculate the instantaneous rate of change at any time. The value of that rate is the slope of the tangent line at that given time.
