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.

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