Fractional Reaction Orders

Postby Emily Oren 3C » Thu Mar 01, 2018 7:57 pm

What does it mean for there to be a fractional (for example 1.5) reaction order and how does this happen? Will we have to know/work with reactions like this on exams? Also, is having a fractional reaction order common?

This example is included in one of the sections we have to study for the next test, but we did not really cover it in class so I don't think that it will make up a significant portion of an exam. A fractional reaction order is when the order of a reaction is a fraction rather than an integer (we have been studying whole number orders so far, such as 0th, 1st, 2nd order of a reaction).

I do not think that we will deal with non-interger reaction orders in this class.
