Answer:

#109.5^@#

Explanation:

The bond angle in chair conformation is #109.5^@# similar to the bond angle in a tetrahedral geometry.

In fact, cyclohexane take the chair conformation to achieve a bond angle similar to the tetrahedral geometry to eliminate angular strain.

Here are videos where I full explain the chair conformation and why it happens, along with its stereoisomerism and energy.
