question

Learning Goal:
To calculate average and relative reaction rates.
You can measure the rate of a reaction, just like you can measure the speed a jogger runs. While a jogger would be reported to run a specific number of miles in an hour, miles/hour, a reaction is reported to form product or consume reagent in molar concentration per second, M/s.
Reaction rate can be defined either as the increase in the concentration of a product per unit time or as the decrease of the concentration of a reactant per unit time. By definition, reaction rate is a positive quantity.
In the reaction X?2Y, for example, Y is being produced twice as fast as X is consumed and thus
rate of X=12(rate of Y)
Each rate can be expressed as the change in concentration over the change in time, ?t:
??[X]?t=12(?[Y]?t)

Rate law equation
The rate of a chemical reaction depends on the concentrations of the reactants. For the general reaction between Aand B,
aA+bB?cC+dD
The dependence of the reaction rate on the concentration of each reactant is given by the equation called the rate law:
rate=k[A]m[B]n
