Please draw the structures neatly and clearly and follow directions. If you have a Chem drawing program (i.e. ChemDraw, Chem3D), I will increase the credit, if not please draw them out by hand.
Strain or Steric energy
(a) Choose an alkene having cis and trans isomers and draw one of these (give name of alkene also). Determine the strain energy. Draw the isomeric compound. Comment of the results. This should include appropriate views.
(b) Draw an alkane in the "zig-zag" stick conformation. Draw the same molecule in a less stable conformation. Comment on the results. This should include appropriate views.
It draws the structures of alkene with cis and trans isomers and in the "zig-zag" stick conformation respectively.
