Homework Help: Rates of reaction

  1. Oct 25, 2005 #1
    hi i have almost finished my chemistry coursework on rates of reaction based on concentration using sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid. the conc of sodium thiosulphate is my variable. we measure concentration by placing a cross under the reaction mixture and sulphur percipitated makes the cross disappear using time taken for it to disappear.

    i have taken two graphs:
    one is showing the concentration against time taken
    second is showing the rate of reaction (1/time) against concentration

    my question is: what does the second graph show that the first graph dosent? apart from the fact that rate of reaction is porportional to concentration. Thanks

    which one is more important for understanding the rate constant. The order of the reaction?
