Question in the link. How do I go from here and get the rate constant and n values?

Equation: k' = k[OH- ]^n

k' and [OH-] measured / calculated

Log both sides of the equation above

log k' = log (k[OH- ]^n )
log k' = log k + n log([OH- ]

which is the same as

log k' = n log([OH- ] + log k
Which you can look at as y = mx + b

m = n, therefore slope = n, n = 1.04
calculate k after that
