Estimate the percentage of the twist-boat conformation of cyclohexane present at 25 °C, assuming that the entropies of the chair and twist-boat are identical.” In the question and answer, the entropies of the two conformers are assumed as being the same. Please discuss the results that you would get if the entropy of the twist-boat conformation were higher or lower.
