For the following cyclohexane derivatives, draw the substituent groups on the two alternative chair conformations to indicate axial vs. equatorial positions. Be as careful as you can to clearly distinguish axial from equatorial in your drawing. If there is a difference in stability, draw a circle around the more stable conformation. If there is not any difference in stability, do not circle either chair form.
