small scale of nutrients
A type of organic molecule that contains C, H, O. E.g. Glucose, starch, glycogen
A type of organic compound composed of C, H, O that forms fats, lipids, waxes.
A type of organic molecule that is made up of amino acids that contain C, H, O & N. The function includes: growth & repair, source of energy.
Largest and most complicated molecules found in living things. Made up of phosphates, ribose (simple sugar) and nitrogen. Function: heredity & controls cell activities.
The movement of molecules from an area of higher concentration to one of lower concentration.
A type of diffusion. The movement of water through the walls from an area of high concentration of water to a low concentration of water.
Using energy to move molecules of nutrients in the direction opposite of diffusion.
Does not use energy to move molecules.
The process of taking food into our bodies.
The breakdown (lysis) of large organic molecules using water (hydro)
The material on which an organism moves or lives.
