Chapter 3 Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes are summarized lists of the main ideas/skills that students should take away from a chapter. “Learning Outcomes” lists are not exhaustive; there may be other ideas/skills covered in the chapter that are also useful but not necessarily the main focus.

For Chapter 3 the Learning Outcomes are:

1. Use Newman projections to represent and name the conformations of an organic molecule.

2. Predict the effect of torsional and steric strain on the energy of different conformations.

3. Predict the importance of angle strain and torsional strain in small rings.

4. Draw a chair conformation and locate the axial and equatorial substituents.

5. Predict the most stable of two possible chair conformations.
