What if I mix 2-pentanol with NaBr and sulfuric acid, what mechanism would that be? Since the alcohol is on a secondary carbon, it could be either SN1 or SN2.

What if I mix 1-propanol with NaBr and sulfuric acid, what mechanism would that be? would this be SN2 because the alcohol is on a primary carbon?

How about W mix 2,4-dimethyl-3-pentanol?
