Answer:

First balance the Carbons. Then balance the Hydrogens. Save Oxygen for last as it is present it its elemental state, thus allowing easy balancing using fractions of O2 if necessary (here it is not). C3H6(OH)2 + 4 O2 --> 3 CO2 + 4 H2O Combustion Reaction. Heat should also be a product.

Answer:

Structurally protect the nucleobases in an efficient package. H-bond between nucleobases align them inside the hydrophobic core of the double helix, which is reinforced and stabilized by the pi-stacking interactions between neigboring base pairs of purines and pyrimidines.

What is the biological role nucleobase pairing in DNA?

Answer:

The chemical interaction of nucleobases pairing in DNA is to retain information/data. Nucleobases are the lowest level of information storage in biology. Without a robust and proof readable system of storage and replication, then rapid and uncontrollable mutant would render an organism non-viable. DNA Transcription --> RNA Translation --> Protein --> Trait
