Biological Molecules are things like varbohydrates, lipids and proteins. They're generally long, complex molecules made up from smaller basic units.

Carbohydrates are Made up of Simple Sugars:

  • Carbohydrate molecules contain the elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen
  • Starch and glycogen are large, complex carbohydrates which are made up of many smaller units (e.g. glucose or maltose molecules) joined together in a long chain

Proteins are Made Up of Amino acids

  • Proteins are made up of long chains of amino acids
  • They all contain carbon, nitrogen hydrogen and oxygen atoms

Lipids are Made Up of Fatty Acids and Glycerol

  • Lipis (fat and oils) are built from fatty acids and glycerol
  • Lipids contain…
