Important Notes ( Summary from old tests) The whole is greater than the sum of its parts Emergent properties Hydrophobic substances are nonpolar substances that repel water molecules Nucleotides nitrogenous base, phosphate group, and pentose sugar. Bad carbohydrates are metabolized more quickly than good carbohydrates Overall protein structure that results from polypeptide subunits is quaternary structure. Max # of covalent bonds an element w/ atomic # of 8 can make with H : 2 Chemical equilibrium: rate of forward = rate of reverse reaction Atoms whose electron shells contain 8 e- tend to be stable and chemically nonreactive . An example of H bond: H of one water molecule with O of another molecule. Covalent chemical bond = outer-shell e- of 2 atoms are shared to fill shells of both atoms. Not formed by dehydration reactions: Glucose (because it’s a monosaccharide) pH of solution with [OH-] of 10 -12 M ? pH 2 A solution of pH 2 has how many H ions compared to pH 6? 10, 000 times more
