1. Each representation in Figure 1 shows ethane (CH3CH3) in its lowest potential
energy (most favorable) conformation. If you have a model set available, make a
model of ethane and rotate the single bonds until it is in this conformation.
а)
Construct an explanation for why this conformation is most favorable.
b)
Consider the Newman Projection in Figure 1. Newman projections are
confusing partly because an imaginary disc is inserted in the drawing to
create the illusion of near and far. What single atom of ethane is hidden
from view behind this disc?
2. Consider the following Newman Projection of ethane in its least favorable
conformation and construct an explanation for why it is so un-favorable.
