Differentiation between drawn structures of chair conformation

Postby Simone Seliger 1C » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:28 pm

I am confused on the correct drawing of the chair conformation for cyclohexane. There is the way that shows two clear points (one up, one down) and the way that has 2 reflecting lines. For example, #15 in the Ch.3 homework draws it the second way. Would drawing the first way (a full shape) be marked as incorrect? I believe that they are different ways of drawing the same thing, but wanted to get clarification.

Thanks!

I got my question answered. Yes, they are different drawings of the same structure so either is acceptable (in case anyone else wanted to know)
