2. Answer the following in one or two sentences.

iii. What is the relationship between coefficients of reactants in a balanced equation for an overall reaction and exponents in rate law. In what case the coefficients are the exponents?

Answer:- The coefficients of reactants in a balanced chemical equation may differ from the exponents in the rate law for the same reaction. However, in the case of elementary reactions, the coefficients in a balanced chemical equation are equivalent to the exponents in the rate law.
