First order v. second order rxns
1st order: rate is less than v max and is dependent on substrate concentration. v increases linearly and does not approach vmax. Product formed forms curved plot, like approaching limit. Not enough substrate to always have some to convert

0 order: rate is not dependent on substrate concentration. as substrate concentration increases, vmax is reached. over time the amount of product increases linearly.

10-100x the Km value must be used to maintain 0 order rxn. (saturation kinetics)

We look at the 0 order rxn to determine rates.
