Answer:

Cyclohexane Planar doesn't exist in nature, it is either Chair or Boat conformations.

Explanation:

Cyclohexane Planar doesn't exist in nature, it is either Chair or Boat conformations, this is mainly due to the angular stain in the planar structure.

The bond angle in a planar cyclohexane is #120^@# however, for #sp^3# hybridized carbons the bond angle is #109.5^@#
