  • Rates
    • Rate of reaction
      • The change in concentration of a reactanat or product per unit of time.
    • Order, M
      • The order with respect to a reactant is the power to which the concentration of the reactant is raised in the rate equation.
    • Rate constant, K
      • The constant that links the rate of reaction with the concentrations of the reactants raised to the powers of their orders in the rate equation.
    • Rate Equation
      • A+B->Products - rate = K[A]^m [B]^n
    • Half Life
      • Time taken for the concentration of the reactant to reduce by half.
    • Rate Determining step
      • The slowest step in the reaction mechanism of a multi-step reaction.
