Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a couple of reactions whose rate constants are known:

A + B -> C + D (reaction 1)

C + B -> E + F (reaction 2)

and I want to know the rate constants of the sum of these reactions. That is:

A + 2B -> D + E + F (reaction 3)

How may I know the rate constant for reaction 3, assuming that I know the rate constants for reaction 1 and 2?

Thanks for all the help!
