Determining n and the order

Postby Victoria Luu - 1C » Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:54 pm

What exactly is the order of the reaction and how do you find it?

The order of the reaction gives insight into the rxn mechanism- an essential part of finding the rate of a reaction (Rate= k[Reactant]^n, where n is the order of the reaction). You can find the order of the reaction by comparing at the experimental data of several different experiments.

It shows the relationship between concentrations and the rate of the reaction
