What is meant by the chair confirmation of cyclohexane? Which form of hydrogen atoms on the ring is more stable axial or equatorial, and why? Thanks, Shizuka

That means that the molecule is not planar. |dw:1433653990839:dw|

Well, when you have a substituted cyclohexane ring, equitorial is preferred, since this prevents steric hindrance between the substituent.

also, less torsion

Right, but was do you mean by steric hindrance and torsion, if I want to expand on this?

steric hindrance, the methyl group can block an incoming group. it is a possibility, of other larger groups, like SO\(_4\) groups or something of the like. |dw:1435270515134:dw|
