Question
Reactions are impacted by various factors that depend on the mechanism of the reaction.

Some of the variables for substitution reactions are:
          • strength of the nucleophile
          • concentration of the nucleophile
          • leaving group ability (i.e., is it a “bad” or a “good” leaving group?

In an SN2 reaction, the nucleophile forces the leaving group to leave. (This is the rate-determining step of the reaction.)
In an SN1 reaction, the nucleophile does not attack until the leaving group has left. (When the leaving group leaves, this is the rate-determining step of the reaction.)
 
 
Based on the information provided in this question, which factors would favor an SN2 reaction?
Choose one or more:
A.a strong nucleophile
B.a good leaving group
C.a high concentration of nucleophile
 
 
 
Based on the information provided in this question, which factors would favor an SN1 reaction?
Choose one or more:
A.a strong nucleophile
B.a good leaving group
C.a high concentration of nucleophile
