Unique Rate

Postby Drew Myers 4G » Sun Mar 01, 2020 4:18 pm

How do you get the unique rate from aR -> bP (with R being reactants and P being products)?

The unique rate would be -(1/b) × d[P]/dt= (1/a) × d[R]/dt

For the reaction given, the unique rate would be:

(-1/a)*(d[R]/dt) = (1/b)*(d[P]/dt)

Remember to add a negative sign of the part of the reactant as we always want positive value for rates.
