reaction mechanism

Postby manasa933 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:53 am

Will we be told if an elementary step is a fast or slow one? And do we always assume pre-equilibrium conditions?

We may not always be told explicitly, but it will be obvious by the information given. For example, if we are told the rate law, than we know which one is the slow step because they have to correspond.
