Reaction Order

Chemistry Level 3

Assertion: The order of the reaction

$\ce{{ CH }_{ 3 }-COO{ C }_{ 2 }{ H }_{ 5 }} \overset { \ce{ { OH }^{ - } }}{ \longrightarrow } \ce{ { CH }_{ 3 }COOH + { C }_{ 2 }{ H }_{ 5 }OH }$

is $$1$$.

Reason: The order of a reaction is the sum of the powers of reactants in the rate expression.

Determine whether the assertion and/or reason are correct or not.
