Polymers are long chains of monomers (single units). Which of the following statements is/are correct with regard to this  topic? The 20 monomers (amino acids) used to build proteins are alike in chemical properties. Polymers can be built by removing a water (an OH from the carboxyl end of one amino acid and an H from the amino group  of the other) and building a covalent bond. Splitting a polymer into its monomers using a hydrolysis reaction always requires an input of energy. The 4 macromolecules introduced in class (proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and lipids) are all polymers. Question 2    1 / 1 point Proteins fold into the precise 3-dimensional shape needed to carry out their functions due to  their primary structure (the exact sequence of amino acids). covalent bonds between parallel rows of beta-pleated sheets in the tertiary structure.
