## Homework Statement

Calculate Order of Each Reactants

I am doing a lab on the reaction rates for k[BrO

_{3}

^{-}]

^{y}[I

^{-}]

^{x}[H

^{+}]

^{z}However when I do my calculations based on my data, i get different orders! The teacher said that will happen but how am I supposed to know which is the right one?

## The Attempt at a Solution

log(5.3E-7/7.6E-7)/log(0.0017/0.0033)=0.5-I

log(5.3E-7/1.2E-6)/log(0.0067/0.0133)=1- BrO3-

log(5.3E-7/2.8E-6)/log(0.0067/0.0200)=1.5- BrO3-

log(1.2E-6/2.8E-6)/log(0.0133/0.0200)=2- BrO3-

log(5.3E-7/2.02E-6)/log(0.0167/0.0333)=2- H

log(5.3E-7/3.8E-6)/log(0.0167/0.0500)=2-H

log(2.02E-6/3.4E-6)/log(0.0333/0.0500)= 1 H
