3 Conformations of cyclopropane h sp 3 carbons in cyclic molecules are often forced to deviate from the ideal tetrahedral angle (109.5 ° ), resulting in angle strain h eclipsing interactions with neighbouring atoms create torsional strain , which is the reason that most cyclic hydrocarbons are not planar * * of course, cyclopropane is planar - three points define a plane!
