Approaches to mechanisms

What is the difference between steady state and pre eq approaches?

Re: Approaches to mechanisms

They are both just different ways to reach an associated reaction mechanism or rate, but he said not to worry about steady-state, so I would just focus on pre-equilibrium problems. You will get the same answer both ways.

Re: Approaches to mechanisms

In lecture professor Lavelle mentioned that we only need to focus on the Pre-Equilibrium approach.
