    whats the difference for the rate equation for a reaction and the average rate?

    if your talking about the A-level chemistry's rate equation then there isn't any difference:

    Rate = k[A][b]

    The units of rate is: moldm'3s'-1

    so therefore the rate is really the average of the reaction.
    Also the rate is never the same throughout the reaction so there's further proof that you always work out the average rate.
