I was wondering how to determine the overall order of a reaction? I remember my TA saying that the sum of the reactions powers is the overall order... but how do we determine is it is zero, first or second order from this?
The overall order of the reaction can be found by adding all of the exponential factors of each reactant. For example, if Rate=k[H][C], then it would be a second order reaction since each reactant only has a 1 in their exponent
