Problem: Draw the structure of the secondary carbocation that could form in the hydrobromination of 2-hexene. CH3CH2CH2CH=CHCH3 + HBr         • You do not have to consider stereochemistry.         • If two secondary carbocations are possible, draw both of them.         • Draw one structure per sketcher. Add additional sketchers using the drop-down menu in the bottom right corner.        • Separate structures with + signs from the drop-down menu.
