Video Transcript

Hey guys. So, for this question notice that they gave us cyclobutyl, cyclopentane, so if you may have been a little bit confused on how we're going to draw this but I want you guys to treat this cyclobutyl actually as a substituent and what I mean by that is our route would be cyclopentane, okay? So, would you all agree that this is your cyclopentane? let's fix it a little, this is a cyclopentane ring, it's five carbons. Now, as a substituent we can add in a cyclobutyl group, that's going to be a four carbon ring as a substituent, so what we can do is we can come here and add something that looks like that, let's make it more proportionate, so we have a four membered ring that looks like that, okay? And notice we have a five membered ring and then a cyclobutyl group, this would be your cyclobutyl as a substituent, this it has butyl, right? So that I have that yl indicate this it's a substituent such as methyl or ethyl, treat it the same way, and then we have the root of that cyclopentane, so this five carbon ring is going to be this like cyclopentane part, okay? So I hope this made sense, let me know if you have any questions on how we drew the structural formula for a cyclobutyl cyclopentane.
