Graded Homework Problem #06 – Answer Key This problem is worth a total of 20 raw points. Consider the conformation of 2,3-dimethylbutane shown below. We will call this conformation : In the boxes below, write Newman projections for each conformation indicated. Start with the 0° conformation, and view the molecule from the direction indicated. Then, keep the groups on the front carbon atom fixed as you rotate the groups on the back carbon in clockwise increments of 60°. The number below each box indicates the total angle of bond rotation with respect to the starting conformation of 0°. 0 o 60 o 120 o 180 o 240 o 300 o H 3 C H 3 C H CH 3 H H 3 C H 3 C H CH 3 CH 3 H H 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
