 Explain the difference between the average rate of reaction and the instantaneous rate of reaction. 


Expert Answer

Step 1

The average rate of reaction is an average rate which is obtained by taking the concentration change over a time period, for example, 0.3 M / 10 minutes. This is a rough mean rate calculated for the whole period of time, but it does not...
