Compounds made up of carbon hydrogen and oxygen atoms?
Lipids- Molecules mostly made up of Carbon and Hydrogen atoms that makes fats, oils, and wax Carbohydrates-Compound composed carbon, hydrogen, oxygen in a ratio of 1:2 Carbon and Hydrogen atoms Proteins- are made of small carbon compounds called Nucleic Acids Nucleic Acids-small compounds of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, and sometimes sulfur
What is a common example of a compound in which carbon atoms are bonded to oxygen and hydrogen atoms?
Sugar is a common example of a compound with carbon atoms bonded to hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Compounds made from carbon, oxygen and hydrogen often fall under the category of carbohydrates, which are common to almost every living thing (including you!). Common table sugar is sucrose, and has the chemical formula C12H22O11. That's a common carb that you probably encounter daily.
Dioxide is not an element but a compound. There are many compounds that have a name that includes the term "dioxide." These include carbon dioxide (one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms), nitrogen dioxide (one nitrogen atom and two oxygen atoms), and hydrogen dioxide (one hydrogen atom and two oxygen atoms). Hydrogen dioxide is more commonly known as "water."
Atoms are elements, not compounds. Compounds are composed of two or more different atoms. For example, the element carbon, with the symbol C, is composed of atoms. If you combine carbon and oxygen to make carbon dioxide (CO2) then you have a compound, composed of molecules, each of which have 3 atoms, one carbon and two oxygen.
