    yes, then I have to draw the structure of both the nucleophile and the alkyl bromide.

    These are two ways I thought about it. the second one i'm more sure of because that's what you'll learn in organic II |dw:1444330403173:dw|

    You would need a primary alkyl halide for SN2 or secondary but ideally primary see above

    I think in your figure you reversed it

    Photon's answer is right. Can you post a picture of what you drew @kirstin012596 ?

    since Sn2 is a 2nd order reaction, meaning, SN2 reaction is directly linked to the concentration of two species. You can control it with concentration.
