# How are cycloalkanes named?

The smallest cycloalkane available is ${C}_{3} {H}_{6}$, $\text{cyclopropane}$, and then we gots ${C}_{4} {H}_{8}$, $\text{cyclobutane}$, and then we gots ${C}_{5} {H}_{10}$, $\text{cyclopentane}$, and then we gots ${C}_{6} {H}_{12}$, $\text{cyclohexane}$....
And of course the carbocyclic ring can have substituents, and this often adds a geometric dimension to the ring structure....two substituents can be on the same ($\text{cis}$) or OPPOSITE ($\text{trans}$)sides of the ring.
