Graphs

Postby Lauryn Shinno 2H » Sun Mar 10, 2019 4:46 pm

Will we need to be able to set up graphs to find the order of a reaction on the final? If so, how do you do it?

I'm not sure the answer to this question exactly, but I think we should know the graphs for different order reaction.
For a first order reaction, there is a linear plot of ln[A] vs. t
For a second order reaction, there is a linear plot of 1/[A] vs. t
For a zero order reaction, there is a linear plot of [A] vs. t

I think you can tell the reaction order of a reaction by looking at the graphs and their axes (as mentioned above). However, I am not sure if you can mathematically compute the reaction order from a graph.
