Draw Newman projections representing the two gauche conformers and the anti conformer of 2-methylhexane sighting down the C-3–C-4 bond. Label each conformer you draw. Is the steric energy of these gauche conformers greater than, equal to, or lower than that of the gauche conformers of butane? Provide a justification for your answer. Conformational Analysis, page 3 of 3 5. Draw both chair conformations for each of the following molecules and circle the conformer that is lower in energy. If both conformers are equal, state that. Also, name each molecule. a. F b. c. OH d. Cl Cl H 3 C...
