    Rate Law Problem

    The reaction of tert-butyl bromide with azide ion in aqueous solution is proposed to proceed by the following mechanism: (CH3)3CBr(aq) ⇌ (CH3)3C+(aq) + Br–(aq) where k 1 is the forward reaction and k -1 is the reverse reaction (CH3)3C+(aq) + N3–(aq) -> (CH3)3CN3(aq) k2 is the rate constant...
