1. Consider the effect of water concentration on rate of the reaction in water and acetone. WOuld you predict that the rate would be greater or less in the presence of a higher concentration of water? Explain your answer, using the structure of the transition state.

2. Consider the following: You accidentally use 50/50 2-propanol/water instead of 50/50 acetone/water mix. Would you predict that the reaction rate would be higher with acetone/water or with 2-propanol/water? Explain reasoning. (Acetone is a polar aprotic solvent and 2-propanol is a polar protic solvent)
