### Intermediates

Is there any way for us to determine the intermediates of a particular reaction and how many intermediates a reaction will have, or does that information have to be given to us?

I think the equations will be given to us (ex. slow and fast reaction equations), so from that we can determine the intermediates. They will appear in both the reactants and products, and can be cancelled out.

We can determine the intermediates of the reaction by looking at which cancel out throughout the reaction. By doing this, we can also figure out the number.
