Worksheet: Interpreting Hammett Constants

In this worksheet, we will practice using plots of Hammett constants to determine the rate-determining steps of elimination and substitution reactions.


The SN1 reaction mechanism is unimolecular, goes through a carbocation intermediate, and follows a rate law equation. What is the order of this equation?

  • AZero order
  • BFirst order
  • CThird order
  • DSecond order
  • EOne-half order
