In an SN1 reaction, why does a tertiary carbocation has more reactivity than a primary carbocation. The nucleophile anyhow has to attack the carbocation and a tertiary carbocation will offer steric hindrance. A primary carbocation won’t offer a steric hindrance to the nucleophile. I know a tertiary carbocation is more stable than a primary carbocation but why is steric crowding not taken into consideration?
