The slow step is known as the rate determining step in a reaction mechanism. This step is simply the one with the slowest rate.

Slow step is the rate-determining step. The fast step does not affect the rate of a reaction. So when express the rate reaction of two connecting reactions, always express the reactants in the slow step.
