    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
