🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Daoudi's class at UCF.

Solution: When 2-methylbutene is reacted with hydrochloric acid, where does the carbocation form and why? 1. The carbocation forms at the tertiary position because of steric hindrance. 2. The carbocation forms at the secondary position because of hyperconjugation from neighboring carbons. 3. The carbocation forms at the primary position because nature says so. 4. The carbocation forms at the tertiary position because of hyperconjugation from neighboring carbons.

Problem

When 2-methylbutene is reacted with hydrochloric acid, where does the carbocation form and why?

1. The carbocation forms at the tertiary position because of steric hindrance.

2. The carbocation forms at the secondary position because of hyperconjugation from neighboring carbons.

3. The carbocation forms at the primary position because nature says so.

4. The carbocation forms at the tertiary position because of hyperconjugation from neighboring carbons.
