Bocknack CH 310M/318M Spring 2009 Graded Homework Problem #06 – Answer Key Deadline : 3:00 p.m., Thursday, 2/26/09 LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR GRADED!!! This problem is worth a total of 20 raw points. Each box is worth 5 points. A particular conformation of 2-methylbutane is shown below, as a tetrahedral representation. For clarity, the numbering of the parent chain is also shown. Focus on the bond between C2 and C3 to answer all of the questions in this assignment! In the first box to the right of the tetrahedral representation, draw a sawhorse projection for this conformation. As you view the molecule, C2 should be closer to your eye, and C3 should be further away from your eye. Then, in the box to the right of the sawhorse projection, draw a Newman projection of this conformation. The front C atom in your Newman projection should be C2, and the back C atom in your Newman projection should be C3. C
