Order of Reaction

Can someone explain the concept of order of reactions? I understand how to find the order based on the rate law, but I don't understand it conceptually. Can someone help me?

The order of a reaction determines how the concentrations and the rate of reaction are related. By examining the overall order and the individual orders of the components of a reaction, we can see which concentrations influence the rate of the reaction. We can see if the concentration of one reactant is more or less influential than the concentration of another, or if the concentration of a reactant has no influence on the rate whatsoever (zero order).

Hope this helped!

Do we know how to find the order or will it be given?

The hw questions I did mostly gave it to you and told you that it was first order or something else so I think it’s given to you but someone correct me if I’m wrong please

The graph posted above is a great tool to use in order to understand the order of reactions.
