Anatomy Chemistry

the chemistry that makes the body work

Example of a polar molecule water
What is an Ionic bond? One atom loses an electron and another atom gains that electron
Give an example of a Ionic Bond. Sodium and Chlorine combine to make Sodium Chloride.
Two or more atoms combine to make a Molecule
which of the three is lighter; electrons, protons, or neutrons? Electrons
How do you figure atomic weight? # or protons plus the # of neutrons in one atom
What is a Covalent Bond? When atoms share electrons
What is reversible reaction? when the chemical bond can both break down or form together again A+B<-->AB
What is synthesis reaction? When a chemical structure is formed. A+B-->AB
What is an exchange reaction? When chemical bonds are broken down and put together again in a different order. AB + CD --> AD + CB
Why study chemistry in anatomy and physiology? It helps you understand how the physical body works.
List the 4 organic chemical constitutes of a cell. Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins, Nucleic Acids
List the 4 inorganic chemical constitutes of a cell Water, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Inorganic Salts
What is a decomposition reaction? A chemical bond that has been broken down. AB-->A+B
What are organic molecules? Contain carbon and hydrogen and are larger than inorganic molecules.
Name a organic molecule. Proteins
Name a organic molecule.. Lipids
Name a organic molecule... Carbohydrates
What are electrolytes? Substances that dissolve in water.
What are the 3 forms of matter? Solid, Liquid, Gas
What are inorganic molecules? May contain either hydrogen or carbon but not both elements in the same molecule.
Name a inorganic molecule. water
Name a inorganic molecule.. oxygen
Name a inorganic molecule... carbon dioxide
What is an ion? An atom that gains or loses electrons so that is has a full shell
What is a shell? Where the electrons are in the atom.
Cation Positively charged ion
Anion Negatively charged ion
Isotopes Atoms with the same # of protons and electrons but a different # of neutrons
