The order of reactants predicts how many molecules collide together within a reaction. From the order of reactions, you can also figure out whether the concentration of a substance plays a big role in the reaction rate. They allow conclusions to be drawn about the reaction mechanism, and may help to identify the rate-determining step.
Kinetics studies the rate of reactions and measuring those rates. The order of the reaction is important to help determine how reaction rate of the concentration changes over time. The greater the exponent, n, of the reaction, then the more molecules of that reactant there are to react, thus a greater concentration.
