1)In the test with sodium iodide in acetone and silver nitrate in ethanol, why should 2-bromobutane react faster than 2-chlorobutane?

2) When treated with sodium iodide in acetone, benzyl chloride reacts much faster than 1-chlorobutane, even though both compounds are primary alkyl chlorides. Explain this rate difference. Thanks
