# What are the characteristics of rate of change?

## Answer

It is usually a measure of how much one variable changes relative to changes in other variable(s). The pressure of an ideal gas depends on its temperature and volume. There are rates of change for pressure

- relative to the temperature (with volume held
constant),
- relative to the volume (with temperature held constant),
and
- a multivariate rate of change when both can vary.

Next, the rate of change need not be constant. For a body in accelerated motion, the rate of change of location (its velocity) varies with the acceleration. And that, in turn could vary with the force acting on the body.

### What is the rate of change of something?

Depending on the context, the rate of change may be called
different things. In algebra, we recognize rate of change as slope.
Or, more simply, change in y over change in x. In calculus, the
rate of change is the slope of the line tangent to the curve. In
terms of chemistry, the rate of change would refer to the reaction
rate.
