## Different Orders

$\frac{d[R]}{dt}=-k; [R]=-kt + [R]_{0}; t_{\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{[R]_{0}}{2k}$

### Different Orders

Do we only have to know how to do 0-2nd order reaction calculations? And are the calculations similar or are they derived differently?

### Re: Different Orders

Based on the assigned textbook exercises, we only need to know how to do calculations with zeroth, first, and second-order reactions.

### Re: Different Orders

The calculations are very different for different order reactions.

### Re: Different Orders

We likely will not go above second order because these reactions are less common and too complex.

Lavelle's outline on his website for chemical kinetics only has the equations listed for zeroth, first, and second order calculations, so I'm assuming this is all we'll need to know for the final. He introduced the idea of higher order reactions, but it is beyond the scope of this class.

According to my TA, we will only be focusing on 0,1,and 2.
