Hi Student
The most important shapes of cyclohexane are called chair, half-chair, boat, and twist-boat.The molecule can easily switch between these conformations, and only two of them — chair and twist-boat — can be isolated in pure form.
The two chair conformations have the lowest total energy, and are therefore the most stable. and also there is torsional strain in boat form.
