    Actually, "Hope of Mass Action" is closer to the truth. It states that the rate of a chemical reaction will be proportional to the product of the activities (close to concentrations) of the reactants with each reactant concentration raised to the exponent equal to its coefficient in the reaction equation.

    For example if the reaction is A +2B ---> products then the reaction rate = K[A][B]^2 (or K[A][B][B])

    The basic idea is that we hope nature will be as simple as possible and conform to what we see in the equation.
