rate constant


rate constant
In a differential rate equationAn equation that describes the rate of a reaction as a function of the concentrations of reactants (and products), also called rate law., the proportionality constant that relates the rate with the concentrations of reactants and other species that affect the rate. The rate constantIn a differential rate equation, the proportionality constant that relates the rate with the concentrations of reactants and other species that affect the rate. The rate constant is the rate of reaction when all concentrations are 1 M. is the rate of reaction when all concentrations are 1 M.
