Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical reaction mechanism represents the way to form and break the chemical bonds between molecules that leads to the formation of certain product. Different chemical reactions follow different mechanisms.

Step 2

The substitution reactions involve the formation of substituted product due to attack of certain reagents. Nucleophilic substitution reactions are the most common substitution reactions in which nucleophile attacks on alkyl halide to form substituted product and halide group comes out as leaving group.

Step 3

It can be written as:

R-X (alkyl halide) + Nu (Nucleophile)&ag...
