amino acids in proteins

The pKa for alpha-amino groups is approximately 9.5 (8.8 - 11.0), protonated at pH of 7 with a positive charge.
The pKa for alpha-carboxyl groups is approximately 2 (1.8 - 2.4), mostly dissociated at pH of 7 with a negative charge.

Which contain R-groups that are nonpolar, polar? If an R-group contains an oxygen or a nitrogen, it is polar. If an R-group does not contain oxygen or nitrogen, it is nonpolar.
NOnpolar= No Oxygen or Nitrogen in nonpolar R groups

positively charged R groups will be ____ if _____ positive (+1, pka>ph
negatively charged R groups will be ____ if ____ negative (-1), ph>pka
The charge on the alpha-carboxyl group is neutral if the pH of the solution is ____ and is negative if the pH of the solution is _____. below 2, above 2
The charge on the alpha-amino group is positive if the pH of the solution is _____ and is neutral if the pH of the solution is _____. below 9.5, above 9.5
how to calculate pL pI = (pKa1 + pKa2)/2 e.g (pka-alpha-amino + pka-alpha-carboxyl)/2 e.g. (pka-alpha-amino + pka-R group)/2
