Spanish translation:rds (paso determinante de la velocidad)
Explanation:
rate-determining step
The slowest elementary reaction step in the series of steps comprising the overall reaction. The slowest step will control the rate of the overall reaction. This is analogous to a traffic situation, the time required to drive from the suburbs to downtown may completely depend on the time spent in one traffic jam on the road. Abbreviated as "rds."
