Rounding "a"

Do we round the exponent a to the nearest whole number?

Yes -- I'm pretty sure we do since the reaction rates are usually in terms of the coefficients of the reactants/products in the reaction, which are basically always in whole number terms. I also think it should be in whole numbers for the sake of simplicity for test calculations!
