Ignoring Slow Reverse Reactions

Postby 104969854 » Mon Mar 12, 2018 3:01 pm

When creating a rate law from a proposed mechanism, how can we tell which reverse reactions are so slow we are allowed to ignore them?

For this class, I think we create a rate law from pre-equilibrium states. I believe we create a rate law from near-initial conditions rather than equilibrium conditions. If we have to account for a reverse reaction, I think it will be stated.
