living things share the same chemical
living things depend on chemical
processes for survival.
Anything that takes up space and has mass.

Autosomes and Sex chromosomes
Autosomes are the chromosomes that determine
characteristics other than those that are sex related.
Ex: hair color and eye color
Sex chromosomes determine sex related characteristics

Functional Groups and Cellular Respiration:
The point of cellular respiration is to harvest electrons from organic compounds such as
glucose and use that energy to make a molecule called ATP. ATP in turn is used to provide energy
