CHEM- KINETICS

The rate constant for a reaction is 4.65 L mol-1s-1. The overall order of the reaction is:
zero
first
second
third

I am having trouble with the order of reactions. I don't understand this question. this is an assignment question but i have no idea how to do it.

    The units tell you the order.
    Look under this link for second order. (And write down the others). This is good to remember.
