Rate of Reaction and Stoichiometric Relation Chemistry Notes
Reaction Rate and Stoichiometric Relation :
→ If reaction is balanced and stoichiometric coefficients of reactants and products in the reaction are same then rate of reaction remains same by expressing the reaction with decrease in concentration of reactants and increase in concentration of products. So,
For A + B → C + D
→ But if stoichiometric coefficients of reactants and products are not same in the reaction then for determining the rate of reaction, decrease in concentration of reactants and increase in concentration of products with time are divided by stoichiometric coefficients.
So, for reaction,
Rate of reaction can be determined by one of the above steps.
