Reaction Rate Constant Units

Postby stephanieyang_3F » Thu Feb 16, 2017 10:51 pm

Just to clarify, depending on the order, like zero, first, second, etc. order, the reaction rate constant units would differ right? For example, for a third order reaction, would the units for the reaction rate constant would be ? Thanks!

Yeah I'm pretty sure you're right!

Yes, that is correct! For second order reactions, the units are L^2/(mol^2 * seconds).
