Conformations of ethane – Newman projection

Click on the structures and the arrows to view the 3D models and animations respectively

The two conformational energy diagrams shown below are staggered ethane and eclipsed ethane. The relative energies of each conformer are shown.

The staggered conformer is lower in energy than the eclipsed conformer.

Click on the energy diagrams to see a movie of the conformers with their relative energies.
