Solution: Does the rate constant have the same units as the rate?

Solution: Does the rate constant have the same units as the rate?

Problem

Does the rate constant have the same units as the rate?

Solution

The rate of a chemical reaction is the speed at which a chemical reaction proceeds. It is usually expressed as the change in concentration of reactants/products over time.


For a chemical reaction:


A → B


Rate = k[A]


k is the rate constant. It is a proportionality constant in the rate expression that links the rate of reaction to the concentrations of reactants.
