Chemistry Of Life
Marquan Rogers, Lucas Rigel
Water, (adhesion, cohesion, polarity, heat storage, pH)
Adhesion: When water attracts to unlike molecules instead of like molecules like cohesion does.
Polarity: There are 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom on water. The hydrogen atoms are positive and the oxygen atom being negative. This creates the polarity.
Heat Storage: The heat storage of water varies depending on the amount of water. The more water there is the more heat it can hold. Heat storage is how much heat a substance can hold.
pH Scale: The pH scale measures the base and acid of a substance. Water is more of a base than acid.

List for Functions of Carbohydrates
- Providing energy and regulation of blood glucose
- Sparing the use of proteins for energy
- Breakdown of fatty acids and preventing ketosis
- Biological recognition processes
- Flavor and Sweeteners
- Dietary fiber
Fish is a high source of protein.
Eggs carry a large amount of protein. The egg whites and the egg yolk have protein.
Chicken is a good source of proteins.
This is the structure of a protein
This is the structure of the 20 amino acids.
A Lipid chain
This is what a chain of fatty acids looks like
One of 3 fat types
Chains of Lipids
These are different chains of fatty acids, saturated and unsaturated fats.
