The decompostion of dinitrogen pentoxide has been studied in carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) at a certain temperature: 2N2O5→4NO2+O2

[N2O5] Inital rate (M/s)
0.92 ...... 0.95x10^-5
1.23 ...... 1.20x10^-5
1.79 ...... 1.93x10^-5
2.00 ...... 2.10x10^-5
2.21 ...... 2.26x10^-5

Determine graphically the rate law for the reaction and calculate the rate constant.

I am so lost with this problem. If you could also explain how you get your answer that would be great because I don't even know where to start. Thanks!

  1. We can't draw diagrams/graphs on this forum.
    Plot the data, as the problem asks, zero, first, second order reactions look different. Here are some images.
