# Rate Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. 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
