### order of reactions

What does the order of the reaction tell you ?

### Re: order of reactions

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

### Re: order of reactions

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.

### Re: order of reactions

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.

### Re: order of reactions

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.

### Re: order of reactions

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