Hello all. This is my first time posting on this forum so please let me know if I make any mistakes. I received the following question in organic chemistry, and I don't think it provides sufficient information for an answer. "Draw 1,2-dimethylcyclohexane and its ring flip isomer (conformational isomer). Circle the most stable conformation." I think that it would be necessary to know whether the chemical in question was cis or trans 1,2-dimethylcyclohexane in order to determine the stability of its conformations. If it were trans, the conformation that put both methyl groups in the equatorial position would be more stable, but if it were cis, both conformations would be of equal stability. My teacher wrote trans in his answer sheet, so I think he might have added it to the problem in class, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Thank you!
