  • Option 1)

    Order can be determined only experimentally

  • Option 2)

    Order is not influenced by stoichiometric coefficient of the reactants

Order of a reaction can be an integer as its experimentally determined.

so the answer is 4th option

As learnt in

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 order of a reaction has a relation with stoichiometry and is determined experimentally. It can be zero/ fraction/ negative/ positive.
