Answer:

  • In this case the transition state of the reaction is much polar than ground state if the reaction fôllows the SN1 Pathway. So in presence of polar medium like acetic acid the transition state will be more stabilised than ground state and hence activation energy of the reaction will decrease. And the rate of the reaction will be faster. But if the molecule fôllows SN2 pathway the transition state of the reaction will be less polar than ground state. As a result in presence of polar medium like acetic acid the ground state will be more stabilised than transition state.As a result the rate of reaction will decrease. So by analysing all aspects we can predict in acetic acid medium isopropyl chloride will wish to fôllow up SN1 reaction readily than SN2.
