Homework Statement


Why do scientists take the rate of a reaction at the beginning of an experiment?


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I would say because the amount of the reactants and present conditions are already known. But, there is a hint that says "think slow reactions." It may have something to do with the progress of the reaction?

well the slow step is the rate-determining step, and it would be wise to observe an experiment from the beginning ... so it might occur at the get go.
