  2. RATE OF REACTION Average and instantaneous Rate Rate is usually expressed as the ratio of the amount of change in some quantity to the time required to produce that change. Change in some quantity AX Time taken for the change At Rate- Ax = Xfinal-Xinitial over a long time interval is called average rate.

  3. T he rate measured for on infinitesimally small time interval is called instantaneous rate.

  4. Average rate of a reaction Change in concentration of reactants or products Time taken for the change R= For example consider a reaction

  5. Decrease in concentration of A Time taken R= Or Increase in concentration of B Time-taken At [B] At The negative sign in equation (i) signifies decrease in concentration of the reactants. The rate of the reaction is always positive.
