k

Does the value of k affect the rate of a reaction? Like if k is large, does it mean that the rate of reaction is faster?

if concentration is kept constant, then yes, a larger k results in a faster rate

A larger K does indicate a faster reaction.

Yes, usually a larger k results in a faster rate of reaction

k is the rate constant, and is used in the differential rate law. Yes, if k is higher, then the rate of reaction will be higher, meaning the rate will be faster.

Since k is the rate constant, if everything else is constant, if you increase the value of k, the reaction rate will increase.

large k indicates a fast rate and a small k indications a slow rate

a large k means a faster reaction rate
