For the reaction, A
products, a graph of [A] versus time is a curve. What can be concluded about the order
of this reaction?
The integrated rate laws, written as linear equations, are:
For zero order reactions:
For first order reactions:
For second order reactions:
Since [A] vs. t is a curve, the reaction can not be zero order.
