A trisubstituted cyclohexane compound is given below in its chair conformation. Draw the corresponding planar (overhead) representation, using wedgeanddash bonds to indicate the substituent positions. To be graded properly, include the hydrogen atoms on the chirality centers (asymmetric carbons). Be sure that both wedge/dash bonds are drawn on the outside of the ring, or else the stereochemistry may be interpreted as square planar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i do. I am having trouble with where the hydrogens go.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so the first thing, is that a dashed line means that the group is away from you, and a wedge means that the group is pointing straight at you. dw:1441924577768:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Number your carbons and draw the chair form like this. it is important to note whether the groups are up or down. up = wedge on your cyclohexane ring, down = dash dw:1441924908351:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A dash means up a wedge means down on your flat ring. you draw out your cyclo hexane in chair form number the carbons in both the flat ring and the chair form and then, translate as follows. dw:1441925042869:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I see that you have both fluorine and bromine as dashes and that chlorine is a wedge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. are the hydrogens on the correct carbons?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the thing with online websites is that if it's not 100% the exact way that they want it they'll mark you wrong. i think you should show the hydrogen as a dash behind the chlorine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the easiest thing to do is to 1. number the carbons on the ring 2. a dash on the ring is always up and a wedge is always down 3. number carbons on the chair 4. any groups pointing upwards on the chair will be a wedge on the ring 4. any groups pointing downwards on the chair will be a dash on the ring
