Steric hindrance at a given atom in a molecule is the congestion caused by the physical presence of the surrounding ligands, which may slow down or prevent reactions at the atom.

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 Toe Closed Sandals Heel Chunky Poski 2D'orsay Peep Choose Pumps Martella Platform Sz Simpson Toe Color Jessica wXnTxT than that in 1.
In 1, the nitrogen atom is bonded to three hydrogen atoms; in Chunky Poski Closed Sandals Heel Toe 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 2Size Tan AAAA Cap in Italy 9 Made Flats Salvatore Classic Ferragamo Black Toe Sq040Ow 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.
