E vs Z Chair

Postby Alex Nguyen 3I » Sat Mar 12, 2016 11:01 pm

How could you tell which chair is more stable given that they both have two substituents in the equatorial position, one being cis and the other being trans? I don't have a specific molecule, but would it depend on where the substituents are located (possibly further away being more stable)?
