For the given reaction the order and the rate constant should be determined using the given time and total pressure data.
Rate law or rate equation: Rate law:
It is generally the rate equation that consists of the reaction rate with the concentration or the pressures of the reactants and constant parameters.
Order of a reaction: The order of each reactant in a reaction is represented by the exponential term of the respective reactant present in the rate law and the overall order of the reaction is the sum of all the exponents of all reactants present in the chemical reaction. The order of the reaction is directly proportional to the concentration of the reactants.
Rate constant, k: The rate constant for a chemical reaction is the proportionality term in the chemical reaction rate law which gives the relationship between the rate and the concentration of the reactant present in the chemical reaction.
