NEET Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Questions Solved


The solvolysis of 2-chloro-2-methyl propane in aqueous acetone: H2O+CH33C-ClHO-CCH33+H+Cl- has a rate equation. 

Rate =K[(CH3 )3 C  Cl].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 =K[(CH3 )3 C  Cl] step 1 must be rate-determining i.e., should have a higher activation energy.
