rate law (empirical differential rate equation)

An expression for the @R05156@ of a particular reaction in terms of concentrations of @CT01038@ and constant parameters (normally @R05137@ and partial @O04322@) only. For examples of rate laws see equations (1)-(3) under @K03403@, and (1) under @S05962@.
