Concept #1: Introduction to Rate Constants
Concept #2: Types of Rate Constants
Practice: Which of the following rate constants is negligible for the initial velocity (V 0) of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction?
Concept #3: Rate Law: Calculating Reaction Rate (v) with Rate Constant (k)
Practice: Calculate the reaction rate for the following simple reaction if k = 1.3 x 10 -1 M-1s-1, initial [A] = 4.0 x 10-3 M, and the initial [B] = 6.0 x 10 -3 M (for simple reactions, assume coefficients are reaction orders):
A + B → 2C
