Newman projections and conformations

(See attached file for full problem description)

1. Draw Newman Projections constructed by looking down the indicated carbon-carbon bond in the following molecule and make a graph of energy versus dihedral angle.

2. Predict the most stable conformation of hexane. Draw a line wedge formula for this confirmation (hint: consider the conformation about each C-C bond separately).


Solution Summary

It provides examples of drawing the Newman projection and conformation of the molecule. The solution was rated '5/5' by the student who posted the questions originally.
