Problem 13.27.

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.
