High Energy

How do we know when the potential energy of a confirmation is high or low in order to identify it as gauche or anti?

An anti-Newman formation is when the two largest functional groups of each carbon are 180 degrees from each other. A gauche formation is when the two largest functional groups of each carbon are 60 degrees from each other.

Both these formation are variations of staggered.
