Since electrons are always in motion, atoms tend to have a slight positive or
negative charge. When large amounts of atoms and molecules are packed close
together, these sligh

1) Vinegar is polar because of the hydroxyl subgroup (-OH) within its
carboxyl group. However, since olive oil is non-polar (characteristic of
lipids), it will naturally separate from polar substances such as vinegar.

Bacteria are one of the most useful tools in modern genetic engineering because of their ability
to rapidly form colonies with short generation times. The DNA of bacteria can be genetically altered

In the inquiry procedure, the effects of varying sodium
bicarbonate concentration within the solution were observed.
Since sodium bicarbonate forms CO2 when dissolved in water,
