Drawing Line Structures of Cyclohexanes

Postby Colleen_VeraCruz_3A » Sat Mar 18, 2017 2:10 pm

When drawing line structures, how do we know if we have to draw the boat or chair conformation as opposed to drawing a "standard" symmetrical cyclohexane (like a rounded one)?

I believe you'd only have to draw the conformation if asked specifically to draw the conformation of the molecule.
