Rate of reaction

  1. Sep 12, 2011 #1
    consider

    3A + 5B ----> 4C + 2D

    if this is an elementary process

    the rate of reaction is given as

    r = k [A]3 [ B ]5 , where k is rate constant, [x] are concentrations

    so my question is , why is the rate of production of A = 3 times the rate of reaction?

    since the rate of reaction has already taken into account the 3 moles of A, shouldn't the rate of production of A = rate of reaction ?

    thanks!
