Rate Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Rate law is a description of how the rate of a reaction depends on its concentration.

FORMULA

\(r = k [ A ]^m [ B ]^n [C]^p ldots    

Where:

\)r\( = rate law

\)k\( = specific rate constant for the reaction is fixed for any single reaction at a given temperature

\)[ A ] \( = A, B and C are concentrations of different molecular species

\) m $ = m, n and p are reaction orders
