Which of the following is NEVER true for the rate law of an elementary reaction step?

A

B

A catalyst applied to an individual step will always speed up the rate for the overall reaction.

C

The elementary steps always add to give the total net overall reaction.

D

The balanced chemical equation cannot be used to determine the overall rate order for the reaction.
