Amounts of Equatorial and Axial Conformers of Cyclohexanol

ORGO1-B8KKYH

The equatorial conformer of cyclohexanol is 4.1 kJ/mol lower in energy than the axial conformer.

Using the definition of $ { K }_{ eq }$ and the relationship between $ { K }_{ eq }$ and $\Delta { G }^{ o }$, determine the percent of each conformer present at equilibrium at 25$^{ o }$C.
