Markovnikov’s Rule: Arrording to thies rule negative part of the addendum (adding molecule) gets attached to that carbon atom which possesses lesser number of hydrogen atoms.

So accodring to Markonikov’s rule, during addition of hydrogen halide to alkene, the hydrogen does to that double bonded carbon atom which contains greater number of H atoms already attached to it while the halide ion goes to the one which contians leseer number of H atoms alredy attached to it.

i.e. CH3-CH=CH2+ HX →CH3-CH(Br)-CH3255-2408_Capture.PNG
