And where will you be looking it up? Show me a literature example that uses your contrived variable order rate equation.
Don't know what rate equation the constant below uses. All I want is to be able to formulate a rate equation in terms of the constants available, which I imagine relate to the reaction itself with no stoichiometry.
glucose (aq) + fructose (aq) [acidic conditions, 298.15 K]
Better example, to look at the stoichiometry, might be:
(g) + O2
(g) [298.15 K]
Both values come from Atkins' "Physical Chemistry", 8th edition, page 1020 (Table 22.1: Kinetic data for first-order reactions).
Are you saying that the definition of the rate constant (i.e. whether corrected for stoichiometry or not) differs from source to source? Doesn't that lead to massive confusion, when the rate constant is not accompanied by something clarifying whether it is corrected or not?
