## Reaction Order Number

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

### Reaction Order Number

Will reaction order always be a whole number, or are decimals acceptable?

### Re: Reaction Order Number

Reaction orders will always be a whole number so if you ever get a decimal you either round up or round down. If the decimal is 1.999 then the reaction order will be 2. If the decimal is 1.0001 then the reaction order with be 1.
