Levine, Physical Chemistry, Chapter 16 Key Concepts The steady state approximation (the concentration of an intermediate is constant or time independent) allows us to: 1. remove intermediate concentrations from rate expressions for reactants or products of the overall reaction 2. solve algebraic equations as opposed to di erential equations The steady state approximation is valid in cases where intermediates form slowly but are used up quickly. The alternative or reverse case, where the intermediate forms quickly but is used up slowly results in the pre-equilibrium approximation. { For the generic mechanism: A k1a71a71a71a71a71a71a66a70a71a71a71a71a71a71 k 1 B k2 a71a71a71a65 C the pre-equilibrium approxima...
