 Instantaneous Rate is the rate a reaction at any particular point in time.

Instantaneous Rate

Concept #1: Instantaneous Rate

Example #1: Determine the instantaneous rate for the following reaction:

 CH3OH (aq) + HCl (aq) → CH3Cl (aq) + H2O (l) 

Practice: Consider the decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide: 2 N2O5 (g) → 4 NO2 (g) + O2 (g)

What is the instantaneous rate of this reaction at 20 seconds?
