Post your biology questions and biology answers here. That’s what this site is for. Someone asked me how it is possible specifically for enzymes to lower the activation energy of a chemical reaction. It came up with digestive enzymes that Continue reading Biology Answers: How do enzymes work?
There’s a way to understand chemistry even in the mundane tasks of the day. How can a load of tumbling shirts teach you something about chemistry or physics? If there’s not a connection to the real world, then what is Continue reading The chemistry of everyday events
If I had to pick a single molecule that was the most important on earth, I would probably choose the water molecule. Last week I created the first video on the bipolar aspect of water. Its ability to readily form Continue reading The Chemistry of Water 2
This week’s science learning video is about the emergent chemical properties of water. I’ll be getting into these properties in more detail in a future video, but today I’m going to cover the main chemical factor that enables many of Continue reading Chemical Properties of Water
This week’s science tutor video is a foundation for understanding the chemistry of inorganic matter, along with its implications for biology. I cover three types of chemical bonds, but I also get into the Van der Waals interaction because it Continue reading Science Tutor Video on Chemical Bonds
