Difference Between Rate of Reaction and Reaction Rate Constant

Rate of Reaction and Reaction Rate Constant:

The following are the points of difference between the rate of reaction and reaction rate constant-

Rate of ReactionReaction Rate Constant
It is measured as the rate of change of concentration of any reactant or product.It is a constant of proportionality.
It depends upon the concentration of reactants.It is independent of the concentration of reactants.
It changes in a reaction.It is constant for a reaction.
Its unit is moles Lt-1 sec-1.Its unit depends upon the order of the reaction.
It does not explain the mechanism of the reaction.It explains the mechanism of the reaction.
