Problem 28P

Under certain conditions, when $$(R)-2$$ -bromobutane is heated with water, the $$S_{N} 1$$ substitution proceeds twice as fast as the $$S_{N} 2$$. Calculate the e.e. and the specific rotation expected for the product. The specific rotation of $$(R)$$ -butan-2-ol is $$-13.5^{\circ}$$. Assume that the $$S_{N} 1$$  gives equal amounts of the two enantiomers.
