Slow and Fast step

Postby Hanniel U 2B » Sat Mar 16, 2019 8:11 pm

Are we going to have to identify the slow and fast step or will it be shown on the problems in the final?

From all the problems I have done the slow and fast steps were labelled. If we are asked to identify it, we would have to be given k of the overall reaction to see what step matches it and that would be our slow step.

I believe that the slow step (rate determining step) will always be given.

So we need to be able to find the intermediate for the final?

They will give us the intermediate steps. I do not know how else they would expect us to know what the intermediates are if they only give us the overall reaction. They might ask us to label the intermediates though.
