Can someone explain what second order of mechanism is Because it's not the same as order of reactions... Does the second order of mechanism mean there is 2 parts of a mechanism or 2 reactant shown in the rate equation that I posted a picture of

"second order mechanism" merely means that the overall order is 2. In the example you quote, it is 1st order WRT C4H9Br and 1st order WRT OH-. Overall, 1+1=2 i.e. 2nd order overall. The slow step involves 1 particle of C4H9Br colliding with one particle of OH-.
