Are stoichiometric coefficients used for elementary reactions? In the book, it states that they are not. However, in lecture, Lavelle has provided examples where there are coefficients in the elementary reactions of a mechanism.
Yes, they are used for elementary step rate laws, but always keep in mind you cannot use it when you're trying to solve for the rate law of the overall reaction because the coefficients may not always line up.
