Order of a Reaction

Postby Meigan Wu 2E » Wed Mar 06, 2019 10:15 am

Is using the experimental data in rate ratios the only way to determine the order of a reaction? Is there another way to determine the order?

You can only determine the order and then the rate law through experimental data. So, you would have to calculate the order for each individual reactant using the experimental data then obtain the order of the overall reaction from that.
