A single unit of a molecule is called a monomer Two or more monomers bonded is called a polymer 1.Carbohydrates (CHO) carbon, hydrogen, oxygen Molecules: Sugars and Starches Glucose (monomer)- 6 carbon ring course Glycogen, cellulose, chitin (polymers) Glucose and Fructose are monomers bond to form sucrose the polymer The more complicated, the more energy required to create and also to use. Aka Cellulose. 2. Lipids Hydrophobic-afraid of water! More energy/gram than carbohydrates Includes fats and oils

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
