Newman diagrams and conformation energy for butane
Drag the molecule around so that the point of view is
down the central C-C bond
no. 2 to carbon no. 3
Drag the Newman projection around to change the
torsion angle. The graph illustrates the corresponding change in potential energy. You can also drag the green dot on the graph.
