### Catalysts

Can catalysts be part of the rate law?

Definitely not for the overall rate law. As for the rate law for an elementary step, that's a really good question. My guess is no because I think that the only things in the rate law are supposed to be the reactants in the overall equation.

No, since they are not part of the actual reaction.

### Re: Catalysts

I would assume no because catalysts increase a rate, so including it in the rate would not make sense

Catalysts are not included.
