Biology Chapter 2

Carbohydrate - molecules composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen - include sugar and starches. - CHO, 1:2:1 Ratio, C 6 H 12 O 6 d
What are some examples of carbohydrates - Pasta - Bread - Wheat
Monosaccharides - simple sugars in carbohydrat
How many simple sugars are in a carbohydrate - five or six carbon atoms
Monomers Each subunit in the complete molecule
Polymer Large molecule, or a macro molecule, made of many monomers bonded together.
Lipids -nonpolar molecules that include fats, oils, and cholesterol. -most lipids contain chains of carbon atoms bonded to oxygen and hydrogen atoms. - Some lipids are broken down as a source of usable energy for cell
What is the job of lipids store energy
What are fatty acids are chains of carbon atoms bonded to hydrogen atoms.
Protein - is a polymer made of monomers called amino acids. - CHON
What is the job of protein - Build, Repair, Maintain
Amino acids are molecules that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, and sometimes sulfur.
How many amino acids are used to build proteins Organisms use 20 different amino acids. Body can make 12 of the amino acids others come from foods such as meat, beans, and nuts
Nucleic Acids - are polymers that are made up of monomers called nucleo tides - CHONP - Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Phosphorus
Nucleotides - composed of sugar - phosphate group - DNA & RNA.
What is the job of Nucleic Acids - Work together to make proteins.
What is the relationship between a polymer and a monomer - Monomers are sub units many of these monomers make up a large macro molecule called polymers
Explain how both nucleic acids and proteins are polymers. Be sure to describe the monomers that make up the polymers - Both are made up of monomers (protein - amino acids) (nucleic acids- nucleotide)
How are carbohydrates and lipids similar? How are they different?
