Order of the Reaction

Postby Brandon Mo 4K » Fri Mar 08, 2019 5:15 am

What does the order of each individual reactant mean? What does the overall order for the reaction mean?

The order of each individual reactant tells you how changing the concentration of each will affect the overall rate of the reaction. The overall order will tell you how the reaction occurs and what mechanisms are used.

First order reactions have a slope of -k, the reaction is dependent on initial concentrations of reactants.
Second order reactions have a slope of k, the reaction is dependent on initial concentrations of reactants.
Zero order reactions have a slope of -k, the reaction in independent of the concentrations of the reactants.

What are the Y axis 0th through 2nd order?
