Unformatted text preview: Roughly speaking, explain what happens to the
energy of the system as the interaction distance between the oxygen and nitrogen atoms changes
from (A) 1.0 Å, to (B) 2.5 Å to (C) 5.0 Å. 3. The genome of yeast, a unicellular eukaryotic organism, has roughly 3000 genes coding for
proteins, whereas the human genome is estimated to contain roughly 30,000 – 50,000 genes
coding for proteins (the count is not precise because of uncertainties regarding whether certain
segments of the chromosome are actually genes). When the human genome was decoded the fact
that our chromosomes contain only 10 times as many genes was met with surprise, because most
people would consider the complexity of a human being to be far greater than merely 10-fold
greater than that o...
