### Speed of reaction

How are you able to tell if one equation is faster than the other when it comes with an intermediate? Is it usually given that it is faster/sower?

### Re: Speed of reaction

The question will clarify which elementary reaction is faster and slower because you can't determine that by just looking at the steps.
