I know we generally won't be dealing with reactions other than zeroth order, first order, and second order, but how would the graphs look for reactions to higher orders or to an order such as 1.5? What would the significance of this be chemically?
I think in 14B we only focus on those three types of reactions. Knowing the specific reaction order is necessary for a rate law, by which we can calculate the rate constant of a reaction or predict the concentration of reactants or products,
In my discussion, my TA said that we'll only be working with zeroth, first, and second order reactants, however the overall reactions themselves may end up being a higher order (after all the individual orders are added up!). Hope this helps!
