Purav Patel Chapter 3 AP Biology The Chemistry of Life: Organic Compounds Post-Test 1. CO 2 is considered an inorganic form of carbon, as it lacks hydrogen. 2. Carbon is suited to be the backbone of organic molecules, because it can bond to atoms of a large number of other elements . 3. The structures depicted are different views of the same molecule . 4. None of the above is hydrophobic. 5. Water and ammonia are nonpolar molecules. 6. The phosphate functional group normally acts as an acid. 7. Condensation is the synthesis process by which monomers are covalently linked. 8. A monosaccharide designated as an aldehyde sugar contains a terminal carbonyl group. 9.

Saturated fatty acids are so named because they are saturated with hydrogen . 13. Fatty acids in phospholipids and triacylglycerols interact with each other by van der Waals interactions . 14. Molecules 3 and 4 are most likely to associate with each other by an ionic bond. 15. The secondary, tertiary, and quaternary levels of protein structure may be affected by hydrogen bonding. 16. Disulfide bridges are the strongest associations between R groups. 17. Each Phosphodiester linkage in DNA or RNA includes a phosphate joined by covalent bonds to two sugars . 1...

    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.
