For a basic rate law, which of the following does NOT apply?

A

The rate depends on the change in concentration of reactants for a given change in time.

B

Intermediate concentrations can appear in rate laws and are always shown as a reactant in a subsequent step for a multi-step reaction mechanism.

C

Catalyst concentrations can appear in rate laws and are always shown as a product in a subsequent step for a multi-step reaction mechanism.

D

Rates can never be negative, but the decrease in reactants versus time can be negative.
