When graphing Kinetics what should we look for on the y-axis for the different orders. Also what units do we use for each

For 0 order reactions, the y-axis is [A] to make a straight line graph. For 1st order, it's ln[A], and for 2nd order it's 1/[A]. You can figure out the units by always making the rate have units mol/Ls (or whichever concentration/time units you're given).

Also, the units for k are specific to each reaction, so you have to find those separately too
