Macromolecule..Can you help me with my biology?
I have a test tomorrow in biology..I am a 9th grader so please help!!!..
My teacher gave me a study sheet..but I have no clue what the answers are to 5 problems are..
question #1- What macromolecule makes up body tissues? _____________
question #2- What is the monomer of the macromolecule in question 1?______________
question #3- What is a polymer of the macromilecule in question #1 that redues actication energy?________________
question #4- When a polymer is broken down into monomers,what is this process called?______________________
question #5- When two monomers become bonded together to form a polymer, what is this process called? _________________
question #6- What is the hydrate in carbohydrates and is a critical molecule to questions #4 and #5?_____________________
*these are the questions I do not understand..please give a small sentence to go along with each answer so I can get an idea of what you are talking about!!
Thanks Times A Million If You Can Help!!!

#2- amino acids
#6- water (H2O)
Polymers are broken down by splitting water into OH and H and attaching to each end of the monomers.
Monomers are linked by condensation reactions where one molecule loses an OH and the other an H to release water.

they bond at one site on one molecule at the OH while the other monomer bonds at the H = H2O and the bond.Source(s): AP bio
