What does the order of the reaction tell you ?

it tells you how the concentration of the reactants affects the rate.

The order of the reaction also tells you which integrated rate law to use, so that's useful.

Thee order can also tell you which graph [A] vs time, ln[A] vs time, or 1/[A] vs time will show a straight line.

First-order tells us that an increase in the concentration of the reactant is directly proportional to the rate, so doubling the reactant will double the rate. Second-order means that doubling the reactant will increase the rate by a factor of four, and zero-order means that the rate does not depend on the concentration of reactant.

The order of a reaction explains how that reaction rate varies depending on how the reaction is organized. For example if it was a zeroth order reaction then there would be no correlation between reaction rate and time and first order would have a direct correlation and so on.

It tells you how (or whether) changes in the concentrations of products will affect the rate of reaction.
