Shapes of Molecules

The shape of a molecule determines many of its properties; For example: C4H10 is the formula for 2 separate molecules n-butane and isobutene Melting Point    -138°C                   -159°C Boiling Point     -0.5°C                    -12°C Enzymes—shape compatible with those molecules whose reactions they promote i.e.  the enzyme sucrase breaks down the sugar molecule sucrose The shape of a…

Eukaryote vs. Prokaryote

Below is a table that compares the differences in cell structure between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Criteria Type of Cell Prokaryote Eukaryote Nucleus? No Yes Internal membranes? No (no organelles) Yes (membrane bound organelles) DNA Single chromosome; ring Many; linear Reproduction method Asexual (binary fission) Asexual and sexual Size Small 10 times as large as…
