Another useful expression can be obtained by subtracting equation (B) from (A). We obtain

which by rearrangement and cancellation becomes rate3 = rate2 — ratej

It is known from experiment that rate2 (and rate3) is much larger than ratej, so the latter can be neglected here, giving simply rate3 — rate2

Using the expressions for these two reaction rates in terms of the concentrations of their reactants,
