Reaction Rates: Solid State Chemistry

Hi, please refer to the attachment to view the graph.

- What is the order of the reaction?
- What is the reaction rate constant?
- How will the graph shown change if a catalyst is added to the system?
- How will the graphic shown change as the temperature of the system varies?

It will be greatly appreciated if you can share your thoughts on these questions (your reasoning). I am not too sure how to answer these.
