What is the order of the reaction? Whose rate constant has the same units as the rate of reaction?

If the reaction is zero-order, the rate constant has exactly the same units as the rate of the reaction mol L1 s 1. If the reaction is first order, then the concentration of one reactant takes care of the units of concentration, thus the rate constant is simply given in units of reciprocal time, s1. If the rate constant has the same unit as the rate of reaction, the total order of the reaction will be zero.
