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

Solution: One stereoisomer of 1,1,3,5-tetramethylcyclohexane is 15 kJ/mol (3.7 kcal/mol) less stable than the other. Indicate which isomer is the less stable, and identify the reason for its decreased stability.
