Dhruvi Narielwala ME 483 HW Ans 1: A covalent interaction can permanently stick the gecko to the surface and that’s why the method of stickiness is advantageous over covalent interactions. Because the Van der Waals forces are week, it causes a large portion of gecko’s foot to interact with the area of the surface making it very effective for gecko. Ans 5: Stereoisomers are compounds with same molecular formula that are mirror reflections of each other. Stereoisomers exist because of different possible orientations. Since molecules behave with other molecules based on their placement and stereoisomers have different 3D orientations, they react differently with molecules having distinct physiological effects on cell. Ans 6: The nucleotide is a component of RNA and DNA both because of the presence of Guanine base.

    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.
