A first order reaction occurs when any change to the concentration results in an equal change in the rate. A second order reactions occurs when any change in the concentration results in 2x the change in the rate

Hello!

First order means that a change in reactant concentration will change the rate by that same amount. It value of "n" would be 1.
Second order means that a change in reactant concentration will result in a 4x change in rate

Hope this helps :)
