Problem: The following three reactions are similar, differing only in the configuration of the substrate. One of these reactions is very fast, another is very slow, and the other does not occur at all. Identify each reaction (X,Y, or Z) as fast, slow and no reaction, and provide two rationales for your choice. Provide the elimination product for the reactions that do occur. Finally, provide a rate law using short-hand acronyms (e.g., [RX], [Nu], [Base], etc.) for the species involved.Fast:                ___________Slow:               ___________No reaction:    ___________Rate law:         ___________
