We’re being asked to calculate the to determine if the rate of disappearance of reactants always the same as the rate of appearance of products.
Recall that the average rate of a reaction is given by:
where Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M) and Δtime = change in time.
Is the rate of disappearance of reactants always the same as the rate of appearance of products?
