This molecule will undergo an Acid-catalyzed epoxide ring opening. The H2SO4 will protonate O in the epoxide ring. The water, on the other hand, would act as a nucleophile and attack the more substituted
Draw the structural formula of the product of the reaction shown below. You do not have to consider stereochemistry.
