Steady State

Postby Cole Woulbroun 1J » Fri Mar 13, 2020 8:12 pm

Will we only be expected to find the rate-determining step using the pre-equilibrium method, or will we be expected to use steady state as well? If the latter is the case, how can one distinguish whether to use the pre-equilibrium or steady state method in a given situation?

I believe that we will be predominantly using the pre-equilibrium method judging by the homework problems.

I think Lavelle said in lecture that we will not be using the steady state method, which is why he didn’t assign any problems where we needed to use that method!
