General Bio: Carbs, Lipids, Proteins, Nucleic Acids

Carbohydrates provides energy for organisms
Lipids provides energy for organisms, insulation from the cold, and makes up the cell membrane
Proteins makes up structural components of cells
Nucleic Acids stores genetic information for organisms
Organic Molecules molecules that build living things that contain carbon
Inorganic molecules molecules that living things consume that do not contain much carbon
macromolecue large organic molecules
name the 4 macromolecules carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids
which macromolecule is made from amino acids? proteins
which macromolecue consists of fats and oils? lipids
which macromolecule is made of monosaccharides? carbohydrates
solute dissolved particles
solvent substance that does the dissolving
solution solute and solvent
transpiration when water evaporates from the leaves of the plants. Water is pulled from the roots throughout the plant.
cohesion when water sticks to water
adhesion when water sticks to other surfaces
polar how water has a positive side and a negative side

hydrophilic water-loving (the outside part of the cell membrane- the heads you colored yellow)
cell membrane the part of the cell that is made of a lipid bilayer
the cell membrane r is made up of heads and tails. The heads love water - what word describes "water lover" hydrophilic
the cell membrane is made up of heads and tails. The tails fear water - what word describes "water fearing" hydrophobic
What does it mean for water to have high specific heat? it means that it takes a lot of energy for water to change temperature
why is water's high specific heat helpful? your body has a lot of water in it- so it stabilizes body temperature. It also stabilizes earth's temperature.
