### 15.99

Can someone explain how f and g are linear? I'm having trouble visualising that graph.

The different ordered reactions have different axes to plot to show them as linear. Linear plots for a zero-order reaction would be seen by plotting the concentration against time. For a first-order reaction, it would be the natural log of the concentration against time. For a second-order reaction, it would be the the inverse of the concentration against time.

If you want to see this visually, look at Table 15.2 on page. 631 in the textbook.
