# Explain reaction rate with definition

The Reaction rate is defined as how fast the reactants are consumed in the reaction is called its reaction rate.

Integration of the second-order rate law is given by the following equation

d[A]/dt=-k[A]2 ——(1)

it gives,

1/[A]=1/[A]0+kt —– (2)

This above, an equation can be written and easily arranged in the form of a straight line equation and it also yields a plot similar to the one which is shown below.
