First vs second vs zero order laws determine relationship between input and output (input usually being time). first order reactions are natural log relationship, second order are recipricol relationship, and zero order have linear relationship.
It is determined by the rate, so a zero order reaction is one at a constant rate. A first order reaction is dependent on the concentration of only one of the reactants. A second order reaction is proportional to either the product of two concentrations, or a single reactant's concentration squared.
