Rate Law

Science / Chemistry / Rate Law: A rate law or rate equation relates reaction rate with the concentrations of reactants, catalysts, and inhibitors. For example, the rate law for the one-step reaction A + B rightarrow C is d[C]/dt = k[A][B].

Rate Constant

Science / Chemistry / Rate Constant: A rate constant is a proportionality constant that appears in a rate law. For example, k is the rate constant in the rate law d[A]/dt = k[A]. Rate constants are independent of concentration but depend MORE

Integrated Rate Law

Science / Chemistry / Integrated Rate Law: Rate laws like d[A]/dt = -k[A] give instantaneous concentration changes. To find the change in concentration over time, the instantaneous changes must by added (integrated) over the desired time inter MORE
