chemistry - reaction orderWatch
The peice is a study of how basicity affects the rate of a reaction, basicity being the number of hydrogen ions that will dissasociate from one molecule of the acid.
In this case, HCl monobasic
My data is concentration of H+ ions in solution over time.(this was calculated using amount of H2 gas evolved.
My graphs are so close to zero order, ie no curve it's a joke. Is there any way of calculating partial orders like 1.5 order or 0.9 order.
Could someone also tell me the difference between initial rate and overall rate? Including a method of calculating it would be soooooo helpful.
Thanks in advance
