    1. The initial rate of acetylaldehyde, CH3CHO at 600ºC is
    CH↓3CHO(g) → CH↓4(g) + CO(g)

    Was measured at a series of concentrations with the following results:
    [CH3CHO] 0.10M 0.20M 0.30M 0.40M
    Rate(mol/L?s) 0.085 0.34 0.76 1.4

    Using these data, determine the reaction order; that is, determine the value of m in the equation: Rate = k[CH ↓3CHO]^m
