I'm studying organic chemistry from John McMurry's book. Double bond's substituents can be on cis or trans configuration. An example for cyclic molecules is trans-cyclooctene and cis-cyclooctene, where the cis compound is more stable. On the other hand, in a naming exercise this molecule is named simple as -cyclohexene. None of the other molecules in the same exercise was named as cis or trans.
So, my question is: In small rings is not necessary to specify cis or trans orientation because the trans orientation is less stable (maybe impossible to obtain)?
