The image above represents rate of heterogeneous reaction.

To compute for rate of heterogeneous reaction, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **dn/dt **and **Amount of Material (n).**

The formula for calculating rate of heterogeneous reaction:

V = ^{dn/dt} / _{n}

Where:

V = Rate of Heterogeneous Reaction

dn/dt = dn/dt

n = Amount of Material

Let’s solve an example;

Find the rate of heterogeneous reaction when the dn/dt is 36 and the amount of material is 12.

This implies that;

dn/dt = dn/dt = 36

n = Amount of Material = 12

V = ^{dn/dt} / _{n}

V = ^{24} / _{12}

V = 2

Therefore, the **rate of heterogeneous reaction **is **2.**

**Calculating the dn/dt when the Rate of Heterogeneous Reaction and the Amount of Material is Given.**

dn/dt = V x n

Where;

dn/dt = dn/dt

V = Rate of Heterogeneous Reaction

n = Amount of Material

Let’s solve an example;

Find the dn/dt when the rate of heterogeneous reaction is 28 and the amount of material is 2.

This implies that;

V = Rate of Heterogeneous Reaction = 28

n = Amount of Material = 2

dn/dt = V x n

dn/dt = 28 x 2

dn/dt = 56

Therefore, the **dn/dt **is **56.**
