What is a large molecule that is formed by more than 5 monomers?
A polymer is a large molecule that is formed by more than 5 monomers. Polymers are also found in macromolecules. ...

How are both nucleic acids and proteins polymers?
A polymer is a large molecule made up of repeated subunits called monomers. Nucleic acids are polymers that are made up of monomers called nucleotides. Protein is a polymer made of monomers called amino acids. ...
What is the difference between a polymer and a molecule?
A molecule is any two or more elements bonded together. A polymer is a large molecule consisting of a linked series of smaller molecules, called monomers. Many copies of the monomer molecule are linked together, making the large molecule, the polymer. ...

Is poly amides a polymer?
A polymer is a large molecule made up of repeating units. These units are called monomers. In a polymer, monomers may be both identical or non identical. In polyamide, as the name suggests, the monomers are amides and it is a polymer. ...

What is removed when large biological molecules are synthesized?
A molecule of water is removed with the binding of two monomers. For this reason, it is called a dehydration reaction. ...

A large molecule formed when many smaller molecules bond together?
A polymer. The smaller molecules are called monomers. For example, many glucose molecules (the monomers) linked together make a starch molecule (the polymer). Similarly, many amino acid molecules (the monomers) linked together form a protein molecule (the polymer). For more in formation about polymers, starting at the very beginning, see: http://pslc.ws/macrog/kidsmac/wiap.htm ...
Is diamond a atom or a molecule?
Diamond is made up of pure carbon. Here one carbon atom is attached to other four carbon atoms. So diamond should be called as molecule. Should be! If it is called as molecule, then it will be too large a molecule. It will be interesting to count the number of atoms in a big diamond. It will not be possible for the human brain to understand such a very high number. ...

What is a very large molecule having a long carbon chain?
A very large molecule that has a long carbon chain is known as a macromolecule. Some examples are proteins and nucleic acids. ...
Asked in Biology
Is a very large organic molecule composed of many smaller molecules?
No, it is one molecule. However some large organic molecules (i.e. polymers) are formed from small organic molecules (i.e. monomers) that bond together into long chains, forming one new large molecule. The small molecules no longer exist as individual molecules after bonding into the large molecule. ...
Asked in Genetics
Large organic molecules that are synthesized from multiple identical subunits are?
Molecules that are synthesised from multiple subunits are known as polymers. The subunits are known as monomers. An example of a polymer is a protein, which is made up of amino acid subunits (monomers). A large organic molecule, usually created by polymerisation of monomers is known as a macromolecule. This includes nucleic acids, proteins and carbohydrates. ...
