chemistry of life
cheryl and ajanay
cohesive: meaning it attracts to other water molecues
polar: meaning it has a slight charge
heat capacity: how much heat a water molecule can hold
ph scale:concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution
Types of Nucleic Acids:ATP, RNA, DNA
ATP: Are the energy bank
DNA: The Hereditary structure
RNA- Help make proteins
Protein:Are chains are of Amino Acids
The types are:
Monosaccarides-Based source of energy for cells. They have one ring.
Disaccarides-It just energy:lactose and sacrose
Oligosaccharides-It has 2-20 rings, cellulas sign posts
Polysaccharides- 2 rings, plant structure, bug straucture:starch, cellulose, chitin
-It is antibodies that carrie O2
Saturated-is fat that consists of triglycerides containing only saturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids have no double bonds between the individual carbon atoms of the fatty acid chain
Unsaturated-is a fat or fatty acid in which there is at least one double bond within the fatty acid chain.
Allows organisms to transfer genetic information from one generation to the next.
temperature and ph both can denature the enzyme
activation energy enzymes carry out the chemical reaction of the metabolism
