Calculate the ratio of the different chair conformations of cis-1-bromo-4-tertbutylcyclohexane at
25 C. The Gibbs free-energy differences between equatorial and axial substituents on a
cyclohexane ring are 21 KJ/mol for a tertbutyl group, and 2.3 kJ/mol for bromine group. The gas
constant, R, is 8.314 J/K.mol.
