Catalyst in molecularity

Postby Maayan Epstein 14B » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:11 pm

When you report the moleculairty of a step, and that step includes a catalyst, do you include the catalyst in the molecularity or not? Thanks!

Molecularity is calculated by the number of molecules that must react with each other in order to form your products. Important thing to note is to realize that the stoichiometric coefficients must be accounted for in calculating molecularity.
