Definition of 1st, 2nd, and zero order

Postby Mya Majewski 1L » Fri Mar 08, 2019 2:29 pm

What do the definitions conceptually of the order of the reactions mean? Does the reaction rate increase from 0-->2nd order?

The reaction rate does not increase from 0->2nd order... It doesnt really have a conceptual image. More like what patterns does the experimental data show with respect to concentration changes, and how can we represent these changes by raising the concentration's to a certain power to find a line of best fit
