Slow and Fast Steps

Postby Sabrina Fardeheb 2B » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:02 pm

Will we ever be required to write and derive each step on our own? Because I am a bit lost on how to create these equations in order to solve what the intermediate is and use the pre-equilibrium approach.

I think we will be required to know how to differentiate between steps and show which one is the faster/slower one!

We may be given K values or will be told which is step is the fast or slow one. Always remember the slow step is the rate-determining step.
