When we talk about the rate of a chemical reaction, what we mean is the rate at which reactants are converted into products. The rate of a reaction decreases as time progresses. In this article, we provide insight into the derivation of the rate of decrease of reaction velocity with time and Eyring Equation which can be applied with considerable success to a wide variety of rate processes.
