  1. Investigate the rate of reaction of luminol in various factors. The objective was to ...

    The line goes from the highest concentration to the origin (0,0). It is because there is no reaction for 0% of luminol. The straight line means the reaction is zero order with respect to luminol. Rate = k [luminol]0 Rate = k Retrieving rate = k, means concentration of luminol has no effect on this reaction.
