Reaction order is essentially the power to which a reactant concentration is raised in order to give an accurate relationship between it and the rate of the overall reaction.

to find the order of the reaction, just add the exponents for all of the concentration terms of a rate

Reaction order is the power to which the concentration of a single substance is raised in a rate law.

You could also look at plots of the concentration v. time. This link provides helpful visual images: https://chem.libretexts.org/Bookshelves ... _Rate_Laws
