Cyclo-isomers

Postby Laine Gruver 3C » Sun Mar 12, 2017 2:30 pm

In quiz 3, there was a question about drawing three different cyclic isomers for C5H10. How do you do this?

I could be wrong but I believe I drew cyclopropane with an ethyl substituent, cyclobutane with a methyl substituent, and cyclopentane
