Hi! Can anyone explain how to carry out chair flipping? Like how do you re-number it and know where to put the functional groups on the newly flipped structure?

when there's a chair flip the only thing that happens is that all the axials become equitorials and equitorials become axials

For chair flipping, you flip the two triangular parts (the back of the chair switches to footrest and vice versa). In doing so, the axials flip to equatorials. If you type in chair conformation flip on google, there are some really good drawings!
