I plotted both these graphs and their linearity look very similar to each other. I wouldn't know which one to pick if asked in an exam situation.
Is there a more obvious way to determine the order?

Kinetics, Rate Laws, Reaction Mechanism

  • Define rate of reaction for given reactions in terms of reactants and products

  • Rate law as experimental observation of effects of changing concentrations on rates

  • Order of reaction: exponent in rate law expression for component

  • Overall order = sum of individual orders

  • Integrated rate expressions for first and second order reactions; how to plot them

  • First order: t versus ln[concn]; second order t versus 1/[concn]

  • A reaction mechanism is a hypothesis to explain observed rate laws

  • Elementary reactions are hypothetical; add together to get mechanism and overall rate law

  • Learn to interpret some simple rate laws in terms of elementary reactions, for example RBr reacting with OH- where R = ethyl; and tert-butyl

  • Rate limiting or slowest step limits observed rate of a multi-stage reaction
