Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1These 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since Sn2 is a 2nd order reaction, meaning, SN2 reaction is directly linked to the concentration of two species. You can control it with concentration.
