Code: Select all

R-C=C-C=C-C*-R'  <-->  R-C*-C=C-C=C-R'  <-->  R-C=C-C*-C=C-R'
  H H H H H              H  H H H H             H H H  H H

(each C should be bonded to the H below it)
The difference between the three is where the two double bonds and the one unpaired electron are located. This shows that the radical is delocalized and therefore more stable than most radicals.
