## graph for second order

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

### graph for second order

How does the graph for second order look? Will it ever be exponential, or only linear?

### Re: graph for second order

The reaction rate for a second order graph has a positive slope because k (the slope) is positive.

### Re: graph for second order

The graph for the second-order reaction is a straight positive slope line with an equation of k=-slope.

### Re: graph for second order

If a plot of 1/[A] against time is a straight line with a positive slope of k, the reaction is second order.

### Re: graph for second order

It is a linear line with a positive slope since k is positive.

### Re: graph for second order

The graph of a second order reaction is a positive slope of k when plotted on the graph of1/[A] vs time.
