Relative Energy Differences?

Postby Kristen_Power_1C » Thu Mar 16, 2017 7:47 pm

Will we need to know the relative energy differences of the different conformations? In the course reader it often mentions the energy levels in kcals*mol-1 and I was wondering whether it would be beneficial to memorize these energy differences for the final.

I don't believe we need to memorize the energy differences, we just need to know which conformation has less energy and is more stable.
