Chem 160 Ch 16 3 Average rate, Instantaneous Rate, Initial Rate The slope of the straight line Δ y/ Δ x, joining any two points gives the average rate over time. The shorter the time period we choose, the closer we come to the instantaneous rate, the rate at a particular instant during the reaction. The slope of a line tangent to the curve at a particular point gives the instantaneous rate at that time. As a reaction continues, the product concentrations increase, and so
