Problem 3.3

Sketch a potential energy diagram for rotation around a carboncarbon bond in propane. Identify each potential energy maximum and minimum with a structural formula that shows the conformation of propane at that point. Does your diagram more closely resemble that of ethane or of butane? Would you expect the activation energy for bond rotation in propane to be more than or less than that of ethane? Of butane?
