They just represents how much they affect the reaction rate. Thus zeroth order has no effect, first has and effect proportional to the change to the reactant, and second has an affect proportional to the change raised to the second power. It is a number that relates the rate of the chemical reaction with the concentrations of reacting substances.

It implies the reaction mechanism and is related to molecularity.
