Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Lecture 3 I. Biological importance of Carbon  In organic compounds, carbon is bonded to hydrogen or another carbon  Carbon backbone: a basic skeleton of the structure of a carbon. Can vary in four ways o Length o Branching o Double-bond position o Presence of rings  Skeleton properties affect molecular geometry  Recall: valence electrons dictate bonding properties o Hydrogen carries 1 valence electron o Oxygen carries 2 valence electrons o Nitrogen carries 3 o Carbon carries 4 A. Hydrocarbons  Organic molecules composed of carbon and hydrogen  Nonpolar, uncharged, nonionic  Hydrophobic (hates water)  Can contain functional groups  If
