Nucleic acids contain the genetic information for making proteins.
Nucleic acids are a polymer made of amino acids.
Nucleic acids include both DNA and RNA.
Nucleic acids are found in the cells of all living organisms.
Act as enzymes that speed up chemical reactions in cells
Build tissues like bone, muscle, and blood
Store and transmit genetic information
Organic compounds provide energy for cells.
Organic compounds contain carbon.
Organic compounds contain hydrogen.
Organic compounds are the building blocks of cells.
Some carbon atoms linked by double bonds.
More than 100 carbon atoms.
All carbon atoms linked by single bonds.
No carbon atoms that are bonded to four other atoms.
Glucose is a carbohydrate.
Glucose is a monosaccharide.
Glucose is a polysaccharide.
Glucose is a source of energy for the cell.
Oxygen side being slightly positive and the hydrogen side being slightly negative.
Oxygen and hydrogen sides being slightly positive.
Oxygen and hydrogen sides being slightly negative.
Oxygen side being slightly negative and the hydrogen side being slightly positive.
Combination of isotopes.
Evenly distributed mixture of two or more substances.
Combination of two or more liquids.
The total number of electrons involved in the bond
The total number of protons and neutrons in both atoms
The difference in the relative attraction of electrons to each atom (HINT: this means electrons are not shared equally)
The difference in the relative attraction of protons to each atom (HINT: this means protons are not shared equally)
The molecules will contain carbon and hydrogen.
The carbon backbone can form rings or chains.
Ionic bonds are present between the atoms.
Amino and phosphate groups can be present.
It can form bonds with carbon atoms only.
These atoms are naturally chemically stable.
It can react with up to four other atoms to form covalent bonds.
It cannot react with anything other than organic molecules.
Atoms held together by ionic bonds separate when placed in water, while atoms held together by covalent bonds do not separate in water.
Ionic bonds hold together atoms of two different types, while covalent bonds hold together atoms of the same type.
Electrons are transferred between atoms held together by an ionic bond, but they are shared between atoms held together by a covalent bond.
Ionic bonds form between atoms that carry opposite charges, while covalent bonds form between uncharged atoms.
Water molecule adhesion is caused by polarity and hydrogen bonding.
Capillary action of water molecules is caused by polarity and hydrogen bonding.
Water molecule cohesion is caused by polarity and hydrogen bonding.
Surface tension of water molecules is caused by polarity and hydrogen bonding.
Water is the universal solvent, but this is not caused by polarity and hydrogen bonding.
