Alkyl Halide

Solution: (1) CIRCLE the correct energy diagram below that represents the variation of energy vs. reaction coordinate for the SN1 reaction of 2-bromo-2-methylpropane with azide ion, N 3-,(2) DRAW the structure of the three species present at the points indicated on that diagram(3) INDICATE in the box below each structure which point (A-R) you are drawing. Use dotted lines and partial charges for transition states. (Notes: You need not draw out all the bonds within the N3-. Stereochemistry is not necessary.)
