correct statement? concerning rate laws

Postby inlovewithchemistry » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:35 pm

Elementary rate laws can be determined from the chemical formula, but reaction rate laws must be experimentally determined and cannot be determined from the rate law.

is this statement correct? if not, why?

This is correct; the rate law deriving solely from elementary steps information relies on the coefficients in the steps, since no experimental data is given.
