So I noticed a trend with the units of k, we keep dividing each one by M (molarity) i.e. zero order is k M/s, first order is k 1/s, second order is k 1/M.s. Does this trend continue for 3rd, 4th, and 5th orders?
A helpful way of finding the units for different orders is to use . The x value would be the order that you are finding your units for. For example, if you are trying to find the units for a 10th order reaction, it would be =. I hope this helps!

The M refers to molarity, so the liters would be implied. If m was written, then yes, L would've needed to have been specified.
