elementary reaction

Postby Tiffany Cao 1D » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:29 pm

Can we assume the rate law for individual elementary reactions? For an example, if a slow elementary reaction is 2I+H2==>2HI, is the rate law=k[I]^2[H2}?

We can assume the rate law using the coefficients in an elementary reaction only when proposing a reaction mechanism.
