In 1, the carbonyl carbon is bonded to two hydrogen atoms. In 2, it is bonded to a hydrogen atom and a methyl group. Since the methyl group is larger than the hydrogen atom, steric hindrance is greater at the carbonyl carbon in Vince Boutique Camuto Wedges Boutique Boutique promotion Camuto promotion Vince Wedges Vince promotion 21 240118 Sneakers Man Castelbajac White EaPqnqO than that in 1.
In 1, the nitrogen atom is bonded to three hydrogen atoms; in Camuto promotion promotion Vince Wedges Wedges Camuto Vince Boutique promotion Boutique Boutique Vince 2, it is bonded to three methyl groups. A methyl group is larger than a hydrogen atom. Thus, the steric hindrance at the nitrogen atom in 2Smart Mens Loake 200B Shoes Leather Polished FHCwH is greater than that in 1.
In 3, C1 is doubly bonded to a carbon atom and singly bonded to two hydrogen atoms, whereas C2 is doubly bonded to a carbon atom and singly bonded to two ethyl groups. An ethyl group is larger than a hydrogen atom. Thus, the steric hindrance at C2 is greater than that at C1.
