order of the reactant

Postby josmit_1D » Sun Mar 01, 2020 7:34 pm

what does the order of the reactant tell us about the reaction mechanism?

The order of the reactant indicates how much the rate of the reaction is affected if the concentration of (one of) the reactant(s) is changed.

Note that this isn't the same of the overall reaction order, which is the su. of the order of each of the individual reactants.

The order of the reaction tells us how the overall rate of reaction is affected by the concentration of the reactants, basically providing a relationship between reaction rate and reactant concentration.
