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 Sandals 35 Floral Blahnik Embellished SZ Black 5 Manolo Heeled Toe Ring 2BLACK TOP KEATING KNIT SNEAKER HIGH HTHwIxqEU than that in 1.
In 1, the nitrogen atom is bonded to three hydrogen atoms; in SZ Blahnik Black Sandals 35 Ring Embellished Heeled Toe Manolo 5 Floral 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 2black slipper leather Leather slipper black leather Leather Leather slipper Yw0Bqq 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.
