A method is presented whereby the order of a simple reaction may be determined. The rate constant in the rate expression is eliminated by means of the integrated rate expression. In this manner unique relations between the nondimensionalized rate and the reacted fraction are obtained for arbitrary orders. Plots constructed from these relations may be used to determine the order of a reaction when concentration measurements as a function of the reaction time are available. Author
