    Hello guys,

    I was studying the 1st chapter and got confused in one part. I will share a screenshot of the handout that I have and I kindly request you to have a look to the underlined sentence where it says "This means that the rate of a reaction is not affected by an increase in pressure".

    But as we think about the rate equation: r=k[A][B](for example), as pressure increases concetration should be increasing as well causing the rate to increase. Is it because the s.a of the enzyme is the limiting factor?

    Thanks in advance!

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
