Problem: Complete the following mechanism for the reaction of the alcohol shown with HCl. Use appropriate arrows to show all movement of electrons, show all non-bonding electrons as dots and show any formal charges. If any of the species are really racemic mixtures of enantiomers, you only need to draw one stereoisomer and write "racemic". In the boxes provided, write which kind of mechanisitc element is being shown for that step, i.e. "make a bond", etc.
