rate determining and rate limiting step

Postby Salma Sudarmadji 2I » Sun Mar 05, 2017 12:01 pm

Hi,
Is the rate determining step (which is the slow step) the same as rate limiting step?

Thanks

Yes the rate determining step and rate limiting step mean the same thing. It is always the slow step because it "determines" or "limits" the speed of the reaction.
