What are the classifications of alcohols?
Alcohols can be classified as primary, secondary and tertiary. primary alcohols are alcohols that are attached to a carbon that is attached to one other carbon. A secondary alcohol is an alcohol that is attached to a carbon that is attached to two other carbons. A tertiary alcohol is attached to a carbon that is attached to three other carbons.
How can you easily remember the electronegativity of elements?
When looking at the periodic table, the higher up in the period, and the further to the right side of the table, the elements are more electronegative. The further down in a period you move and to the left, the less electronegative they are.
What is the difference between globular and fibrous protein?
Fibrous and globular proteins have two different purposes in the body. Fibrous proteins are long and narrow. They are mostly present in connective tissues throughout the body. Globular proteins are spherical shaped and they are present in the blood. The shape of globular proteins make it easy for them to be transported through the blood stream. An added benefit to globular proteins is that they are water soluble. Fibrous proteins are not water soluble, which makes them more sturdy to make up connective tissues.
