Rate Law Determination

APCHEM-GJXEQY

The rate of loss of reactants is equal to the rate of formation of products in a chemical system.

Which of the following can determine the rate law for a reaction?

A

The rate law for most common reactions is found in a reference table.

B

The rate law is determined based on the balanced equation, regardless of the complexity of the reaction.

C

The rate law must be determined experimentally for each reaction.

D

The rate law for a reaction is based on the use of a catalyst only, so the type of catalyst determines the rate law.
