Checking Answers

The book mentioned that a good way to check your calculated rate constant when given experimental data is to plug it into the rate law with the given data and see if you get the given rate. I was wondering what some other quick ways there are to check our answers in this kinetics section?

the book doesn't really mention any other ways to check your answers, so i don't think we will have to know that

I think it's always best to ensure your answer makes sense for the reaction as a method to check too! For example, if we got an order that was an extremely high numbe, something most likely is off
