Ring-containing structures are common in organic chemistry. Cyclical connectivity imposes constraints on the range of motion that atoms in rings undergo. The amount of energy stored in a strained ring is called ring strain. [Ref. "Estimation of heats of formation of organic compounds by additivity methods," Chem. Rev. (1993) 93, 2419-2438].
