how do you identify a zero order reaction?

Zero order reaction rates are independent of [R]. This means that the rate law is just k which makes its units mol/(L x s).

Also, zero-order reactants have an exponent of zero, which makes the reactant negligible to the overall rate law.

A zero-order reaction is one where the rate of reaction does not depend on the concentration of any reactants. In that case, the rate simply equals the rate constant. You can see this through experimental data where the concentration of reactants change, but the rate of reaction does not change at all.

A zero order reaction is independent of concentration and only depends on the rate constant.

You can identify a zero order reaction by looking at experimental data or looking at the graph, which should yield a linear line for the plot of [A] vs time
