What is the energy difference between the axial and equatorial conformations of cyclohexanol (hydroxcycyclohexane) and how do you find it?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The structure of chemical compound can be represented as structural formula. A structural formula interprets the arrangement of all bonded atoms with the help of atomic symbols and chemical bonds.

Step 2

The isomer molecules have same molecular formula but different structural formula. Different types of isomers are possible like structural isomer, stereoisomers etc.

Step 3

The stereoisomers have same molecular formula but different arrangement of bonded atoms in three-dim...
