Unformatted text preview: 3. Which structure is most stable? (1 pt) 4. Provide the structure(s) of the product(s) when each of the following cation is generated in the presence of Br-(2 pts). Page 2 of 2 5. Addition of HCl to 1-vinyl-1-methylcyclopentane yields 1-chloro-1,2-dimethylcyclhexane and the reaction is exergonic. (a) Write the complete stepwise reaction mechanism. Use curved arrow to show the electron flow in the mechanism and show the structures of the intermediates (clearly label all the charges if there are any) (3 pts). (b) Draw the reaction energy diagram based on your mechanism. In the diagram, label the starting materials, products, intermediates, transition states, activation energy for each step, and the overall energy difference between the starting materials and the product (3 pts). (c) Which parameter in the diagram can be used to calculate the equilibrium constant? By using which equation? (1 pts)...
