Ordered Reaction

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

Ordered Reaction

Can someone please explain the difference between 1st, 2nd and 0-order reaction?

Thanks!

Re: Ordered Reaction

First order is the rate of consumption proportional to the first power of the concentration (has a slope of -k)
Second order is the rate of proportional to the second power of the concentration.. ( has a slope of k)
A zero-order is the rate independent of the concentration of the reactant ( has a slope of -k)
