According to textbook, elementary reactions have an order of reaction equal to the summation of the stoichiometric coefficients. why is this so?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And there is another problem, we can balance an equation in different ways and get different stoichiometric coefficient sets, for rates, which set is prefered?
