Choose the data set corresponding the to last digit in your Student ID Number.

Plot the data as:
a) a zero order reaction
b) a first order reaction
c) a second order reaction

Based on these plots, determine the order of reaction and the rate constant, including units. Use a full, clean sheet of graph paper for each plot (spread sheets plots are NOT acceptable). Be sure that the axes are labeled and that the data uses the entire plotted area of your graph.



Turn in the following:

Name
Student ID Number
Staple or paper clip the three plots together and be sure to indicate your conclusion concerning the order of reaction and the value of the rate constant
