Unformatted text preview: 4B. (4 pts) At the T.S. for the 8N2 reaction the OH and the Br are attached to the central
carbon. What effect does this have on the entropy of activation, and how will the shape
of the col change relative to the vibrations in the reactants. 4.C. (4 pts) However, if less solvent is required to solvate the T.S. than to solvate the
reactant, then some solvent molecules should be liberated into the bulk solvent media upon achievement of the T.S. What eﬁ'ect will this have on the shape of the col for a given reaction?
