Reaction orders

Postby Lumbini Chandrasekera 1B » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:36 pm

Can you determine the order of a reaction simply from looking at the coefficients of the balanced chemical equation or do you have to use the experimental data?

You have to look at the experimental data and determine the order.

You'd have to use the experimental data still because coefficients don't determine order
