Zero Order Reactions

Postby Alondra Olmos 4C » Tue Mar 12, 2019 3:11 am

Is saying a reaction in which the rate is independent of the concentration the same thing as saying the concentration of a reactant is independent of the rate?

In a zero order reaction the rate does not depend on the concentration. This means the concentration will change linearly compared to time regardless of the rate constant.

In zero order, the rate only depends on k. The concentration does not affect the rate.

In the rate law for zero order reactions, the exponent of the reactant concentrations are zero, meaning the rate will simply equal to k, so reactant concentration will not matter.

So if a reactant's order is zero, its concentration will change linearly regardless of its concentration?
