The image above represents rate of homogeneous reaction.

To compute for rate of homogeneous reaction, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **dn/dt **and **Stoichiometric Number (v).**

The formula for calculating rate of homogeneous reaction:

V_{r} = ^{dn/dt} / _{v}

Where:

V_{r} = Rate of Homogeneous Reaction

dn/dt = dn/dt

v = Stoichiometric Number

Let’s solve an example;

Find the rate of homogeneous reaction when the dn/dt is 24 and the stoichiometric number is 12.

This implies that;

dn/dt = dn/dt = 24

v = Stoichiometric Number = 12

V_{r} = ^{dn/dt} / _{v}

V_{r} = ^{24} / _{12}

V_{r} = 2

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

**Calculating the dn/dt when the Rate of Homogeneous Reaction and the Stoichiometric Number is Given.**

dn/dt = V_{r} x v

Where;

dn/dt = dn/dt

V_{r} = Rate of Homogeneous Reaction

v = Stoichiometric Number

Let’s solve an example;

Find the dn/dt when the rate of homogeneous reaction is 18 and the stoichiometric number is 4.

This implies that;

V_{r} = Rate of Homogeneous Reaction = 18

v = Stoichiometric Number = 4

dn/dt = V_{r} x v

dn/dt = 18 x 4

dn/dt = 72

Therefore, the **dn/dt **is **72.**
