Steric Strain and Torsional Strain

Postby Anjali_U_3L » Sat Mar 18, 2017 10:42 am

Does torsional strain only exist between atoms separated by three bonds? And does steric strain only exist between atoms separated by four or more bonds?

For torsional strain, that is true. For steric strain, it is also true.
