Why is determining the order of a reaction important?

Dr. Lavelle said we would talk about this more next week, but you need the order of a reaction to determine the reaction mechanism.

It is important to know the order of a reaction to predict how a reaction will change over time. For example, if you know a reaction is first order then doubling the concentration of reactants will double the reaction rate.
