🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Becker's class at FIU.

Solution: The preferred conformation of cis-1-isopropyl-2-methylcyclohexane is one in which: a. the isopropyl group is axial and the methyl group is equatorial b. the methyl group is axial and the isopropyl group is equatorial c. both groups are axial d. both groups are equatorial e. the molecule exists in a twist-boat conformation

Problem

a. the isopropyl group is axial and the methyl group is equatorial

b. the methyl group is axial and the isopropyl group is equatorial

c. both groups are axial

d. both groups are equatorial

e. the molecule exists in a twist-boat conformation
