Solution: Rank the three carbocations shown in terms of increasing stability:

Problem

Rank the three carbocations shown in terms of increasing stability:

Solution

We’re being asked to rank the given carbocations in order of increasing stability.



Recall that carbocations are stabilized by hyperconjugation, which is the charge delocalization of σ bonds to an adjacent, empty p-orbital. This means additional R-groups increases stability.
