When we are determining the order with respect to each reactant, can we only take the ratio of the data of consecutive experiments (for example, experiment 3/ experiment 2)? Or can we make a ratio from any of the experiments (like experiment 4/ experiment 1, or experiment 5 over experiment 2, etc.)?
Although it is true that we can take any experiment into account, there is a method to choosing which trials to compare. As stated in the course reader, it is important to only have a change in one of the variables while there be no change in molarity of the other substances. This will allow you to cancel the other variables when solving for the order of that one component.
