Concepts and reason
This is based upon the concept of chemical kinetics.
Rate of the reaction tells how quickly or slowly a reaction will take place. It also tells how quickly or slowly a reactant will disappear or a product will be generated.

Fundamentals
Average rate of a reaction is expressed in terms of reactant and product as follows:
Consider a reaction:
image
Here, a, b, x and y are the stoichiometric coefficients of P, Q, M and N respectively. P and Q are the reactants and M and N are the product of the reaction.
Rate of reaction ® is defined as the rate of disappearance of reactant or rate of production of products. So, Mathematically, it is represented as
