During Idean's Review he mentioned that for a structure to be Z all that needs to happen is for the substituents to be going in the same direction whether they be equatorial or axial. Does this also mean that the two substituents can be coming off of any of the 6 carbons and be considered Z as long as they're going the same direction?
By saying they have to be going in the same direction for Z, it means the two substituents have to both be in the up direction or both in the down direction. Even if they are on opposite sides of the molecule, it is important to note if it is Z or E because they denote different molecules.
