What does it mean for a conformation to be more stage than another conformation in terms of the strain energy? Based on your answer, which of the above conformations of n-butane (eclipsed, gauche, anti) is more stable?

What factors cause the observed differences in strain energy among the three conformations of n-butane studied above?
