### rates

Can someone explain the difference between rates and rate constants

### Re: rates

The rate of reaction is how quickly a reaction proceeds, or how much concentration of reactant(s) is consumed in some period of time. The rate constant is a constant, differing between different reactions, that relates the current concentration of reactants to the rate of reaction

Sure! The rate of a reaction is the speed at which a reactant degrades and is usually expressed in some mol/s or mol/L*s whereas the rate constant, k, is a constant with no units that is generally multiplied to a concentration to find out its concentration at an equilibrium. Rate=Rate constant*[reactant]
