### Rate Constant

What exactly is the rate constant? What does K tell us?

### Re: Rate Constant

The rate constant k can be seen as the proportionality constant that relates the rate of the reaction to the product of the concentrations of the reactants. An example of the equation would be: rate=k[A]^n[B]^m

This Bozeman science video does a really great job of explaining exactly what a rate constant is in terms of the rate law: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOSRn0jPbTk
