# NEET Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Questions Solved

The solvolysis of 2-chloro-2-methyl propane in aqueous acetone: ${H}_{2}O+{\left(C{H}_{3}\right)}_{3}C-Cl\to HO-C{\left(C{H}_{3}\right)}_{3}+{H}^{+}C{l}^{-}$ has a rate equation.

Rate =From this it may be inferred that the energy profile of the reaction leading from reactants to products is

(A)

(B)

(C)

(D)

(B) Tertiary butylhalide undergoes solvolysis in a 2-step mechanism. Since rate = step 1 must be rate-determining i.e., should have a higher activation energy.
