Who Am I?

Whiteboard:Group Member #1A1, B1, C1, D1, E1, F1, G1, H1


  • the green pigment in plants that captures light in photosynthesis


  • has deoxyribosesugar

  • has nucleotides A, T, C, G

  • inherited genetic material that contains instructions for life

  • double-stranded


  • macromolecule made of amino acids

  • contains C, O, H and N

  • found in muscles

  • used for growth and repair


  • examples: H+, OH-

  • an atom with a positive or negative charge

  • # of e- does not equal # of protons

  • lost or gained e-

Inorganic Compound

  • compounds that do not contain C and H

  • don’t come from living things

  • examples: NaOH, FeO

Enzyme-Substrate Complex

  • when an enzyme is bound to an appropriate substrate and bonds are being broken and reformed

  • combination of enzyme and substrate


  • a macromolecule that has H and O in the same ratio as water, as well as carbon

  • ‘hydrated carbons’

  • examples: sugar, starch, cellulose, chitin

Organic Compound

  • compounds containing C and H

  • come from living things

  • examples: sugar, nucleic acids


  • Example: lactose

  • two linked sugars

  • formed through a dehydration synthesis reaction


  • example: H2O2 in our liver lab

  • molecule(s) that is changed by an enzyme

ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)

  • found in all organisms

  • stores energy released from cellular respiration

  • important energy transfer compound in organisms

Chemical Bond

  • represented by lines in models

  • the forces that hold atoms to one another in molecules

Chemical Reaction

  • example: photosynthesis changes CO2 and H2O into C6H12O6 and O2

  • a process that changes one set of chemicals into another

Whiteboard:Group Member #2A2, B2, C2, D2, E2, F2, G2, H2

pH Scale

  • ‘power of hydrogen’

  • measure of H+ ions, acidity

  • ranges from 0 - 14


  • formed through many dehydration synthesis reactions

  • many linked sugars

  • complex carbohydrates

  • examples: starch, chitin, cellulose


  • will be folded into a protein

  • long chain of many linked amino acids


  • used in Inv. 4.4 & 4.5

  • complex carbohydrate used for energy storage in plants

  • type of polysaccharide


  • type of lipid made up of fatty acids and glycerol

  • used for energy storage, cushioning, insulation


  • examples: H2O, CO2, H2O2

  • two or more elements bonded together


  • a type of lipid made by animals

  • found in cell membranes

Nucleic Acid

  • macromolecule that carries genetic material

  • basic unit is nucleotide

  • examples: DNA, RNA


  • the basic unit of matter

  • composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons


  • example: glucose

  • simple carbohydrates

  • a single molecule of sugar

  • can be linked together to form disaccharides


  • breaking down or taking apart

  • example: when H2O2 was broken down in our liver lab


  • example: decomposing starch into glucose)

  • the breaking of bonds by adding water

Carbon Cycle

  • how carbon is exchanged through the environment

  • includes photosynthesis & cellular respiration


  • have very little mass

  • negatively charged particles around the nucleus of an atom

Whiteboard:Group Member #3A3, B3, C3, D3, E3, F3, G3, H3


  • a physical substance that has mass and takes up space

  • can be classified as solids, liquids, or gases


  • example: HCl

  • solution with lots of H+ ions

  • pH from 0 - 7


  • ATP that has had a phosphate removed to release energy

Released Energy


  • to combine or put together


  • neutral particles found in the nucleus of an atom


  • more than 100 types

  • pure substance made of one type of atom

  • arranged according to properties in the periodic table


  • the idea that non-livings are always moving to a state of _____________ while living things, on the other hand, invest energy to create organization


  • requires chlorophyll to capture light

  • process used by plants to create sugar using light energy

Fatty Acids

  • chain of linked carbons with many H bonds

  • component of lipids, in addition to glycerol

Buffering Capacity

  • the ability to resist a change in pH


  • Example: NaOH

  • solution with los of OH- ions

  • pH 7 - 14


  • combining an acid and a base to form water

Amino Acids

  • basic unit of proteins

  • 20 types that are essential

  • linked together to form polypeptide chain


  • type of polysaccharide

  • complex carbohydrate used as building material in plants

  • found in the cell walls of plants


  • prefix meaning many

Whiteboard:Group Member #4A4, B4, C4, D4, E4, F4, G4, H4


  • any substance that resists a change in pH


  • smallest unit of a compound

  • multiple atoms bonded together

  • Examples: O2, H2O


  • prefix meaning one


  • the ability to do work

  • stored in chemical bonds or found in light


  • single-stranded

  • type of nucleic acid used in making proteins

  • has nucleotides A, U, C, G

  • has ribose sugar

Active Site

  • part of an enzyme that attracts and holds molecules that have the right shape

  • denatures under extreme heat, pH


  • macromolecule that is mostly composed of C and H

  • includes fats, oils, wax


  • examples: iron, catalase

  • substance that speeds up the rate of a chemical reaction

  • may or may not be biological


  • examples: catalase, lactase

  • a biological catalyst that speeds up a chemical reaction

  • large, complex protein


  • example: a disaccharide is two linked sugar molecules

  • prefix meaning two
