I have to find the order of convergence of the following sequence

[itex]b_n = \left( \frac{5}{6} \right)^{n^2} [/itex]

I have numerically tested that it has to be a real number between 1 and 2, but I can't find it exactly.

I also have this doubt: does every sequence have an order of convergence? (a real number [itex]p [/itex] such that [itex]| b_{n+1}/b_{n}^p|[/itex] converges to a non-zero constant )
