How big is a starch molecule?
A starch molecules is technically any polymer of sugar. These polysaccharides may be composed of as few as three sugar molecules and can stretch into the thousands and millions of sugar subunits in nature.

Answer In this case, it's obvious... the starch is much bigger. It's composed of quite a few elements... while the iodine is composed of two.
Starch consist of the elements Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen.
Starch is an example of a polysaccharide in which plants store glucose molecules. it is a carbohydrate, so therefor it is an organic molecule. it is a branched molecule that i…s made up of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. its chemical formula is CH2OH
Starch is just a polymer of glucose molecules (C6H12O6, in the pyranose ring form) in a chain one after another. It is exactly the same as glycogen except the glucose chains i…n starch connect to each other through a branch point every 30 monomers whereas glycogen connects every 10 monomers.
It's a chain of monosaccharides.
there are a large number of glucose molecules in starch.
in one molecule there is just 1 molecule
Starch is a polymer of D-glucopyranose units linked by alpha1-4 starch consists of mixture of amylose and amylopectin. amylose is a linear while amylopectin is branched.
Starch is typically broken down by the enzyme amylase pretty effectively. To check to see if the amylase is working properly, you can add the enzyme in a solution of starch an…d constantly check the concentrations of starch at certain intervals of time using a spectrometer.

A long chain of glucose, maltose, fructose etc.. molecules joined together by glycosidic bonds that are made in condensation reactions (the removal of water)
yes. Starch is made up Alpha glucose
