Explain rate of reaction. - Chemistry

Short Note

Explain rate of reaction.

Solution

1. The rate of a chemical reaction can be determined by measuring the extent to which the concentration of a reactant decreases in the given time interval or extent to which the concentration of a product increases in the given time interval.
2. Mathematically, the rate of reaction is expressed as:
Rate = - ("d"["Reactant"])/"dT" = ("d"["Product"])/"dT"
where, d[reactant] and d[product] are the small decrease or increase in concentration during the small time interval dT.
