# What chair conformation is most stable?

The most stable conformation for ${C}_{6} {H}_{11} R$, i.e. alkylcyclohexane, is the one where the alkyl group is EQUATORIAL with respect to the plane of the ring. I urge you to get a set of models and practise the equatorial to axial exchange, and also how to represent the transition on the printed page unambiguously .
