The addition of water to a double bond in presence of mineral acid according to Markonikov's rule is known as acid catalyzed hydration of an alkene.
The reaction takes place in three steps:
Step 1: Formation of carbocation :
Step 2: Attack od lone pair of oxygen of water on carbocation:
Step 3: Deprotonation to form alcohol:
