What exactly are the differences between the steady-state and pre-Equilibrium approaches (and any others I may have excluded)? What are the differences conceptually and when would we use each? Thanks in advance!
When the methods are done correctly, you will get the same answer with either method. Lavelle said that we are not tested on the steady-state approximation, we use the pre-equilibrium method in this class. In the pre-equilibrium method, we assume that the reactants and intermediates are in equilibrium which is different than what is done in the steady state approach.
