what are the smallest out of sucrose lactose ribose and starch?
Out of the four; sucrose, lactose, ribose and starch the one with the smallest amount of atoms is ribose. Ribose is a single sugar molecule with only five carbon atoms. ...
How many atoms are in simple sugars chemical formula?

What is the source of carbon atoms in ethyl alcohol?
Ethyl alcohol is usually made through the fermentation of sugars by yeasts, so the carbon atoms come from the sugars which are carbohydrates. ...
How do plants use sugars?
* plants use sugar to make other orgainc molecules (proteins, lipids) by linking carbon atoms together * plants store energy in the form of sugar or starch (newly made carbohydrates) *sugars can be transported to other parts of the plants that do not photosynthesize (roots) * cellular respiration (make ATP) *next day activities *rapid growth in the spring *convert excess sugar to starch for storage *excess sugars may also be converted to oils and stored in seeds (peanuts) ...

What is C6H1206?
Normally, C6H12O6 is the formula for glucose, a type of sugar. However, a number of other sugars have the same formula eg fructose, galactose. All of these sugars are simple sugars or monosaccharides. They have the same formula but the atoms are arranged differently in the different molecules. This is called isomerism, and the sugars are called isomers of each other. Sugars like these which have 6 carbon atoms are called hexose sugars. For diagrams of these sugars see: http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/C/Carbohydrates.html ...
One molecule of starch has how many atoms of hydrogen?
Starch is a polysaccharide, with a variable number of units. the H count will be high! ...

Sugars with three to seven carbon atoms are called?
Sugars with three, four, five, six, and seven carbon atoms are called trioses, tetroses, pentoses, hexoses, and heptoses, respectively. In general, they exist as diastereoisomers. ...
