Science / Chemistry / Reaction Rate: A reaction rate is the speed at which reactants are converted into products in a chemical reaction. The reaction rate is given as the instantaneous rate of change for any reactant or product, and is usually written as a derivative (e. G. D[A]/dt) with units of concentration per unit time (e. G. Mol L-1 s-1).
Rate Verb Synonyms: measure, pace, gait, speed, velocity, clip
Rate Noun Synonyms: rank, grade, class, classify, evaluate, estimate, calculate, compute, count, reckon, judge, gauge, assess, appraise, measure
Reaction Verb Synonyms: retaliation, reciprocation, reprisal, revenge
Reaction Noun Synonyms: response, reply, answer, effect, feedback
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 MORE
Science / Chemistry / Zero Order Reaction: A reaction with a reaction rate that does not change when reactant concentrations change. MORE
