As we learned in concept

Order of a Reaction -

The order of a reaction is determined as the sum of the powers of the concentration terms that appear in the experimental rate equation. It is an experimental quantity.

- wherein

Formula: aA+bB\rightarrow cC+dD

               r=K[A]^{a}[B]^{b}

              order=(a+b)

  \therefore     Order has relation with stoichiometry & is determined experimentally. It can be zero/fraction/negative/positive

 

 

The reaction given is  2N_2O_5\rightarrow 4NO_2+O_2

Rate constant given is 3*10^{-1}s^{-1}

According to the units of the rate constant , it is clear that the orderof the reaction is 1. 

Rate given = 2.4*10^{-1}mol \: \: l^{-1}s^{-1}

Since, the order of reactionis 1.

Therefore, r= k[N_2O_5]

2.4 * 10^{-5}mol\: \: l^{-1}s^{-1}= 3*10^{-5}s^{-1}[N_2O_5]

[N_2O_5]=0.8 M
