carbonhydrase
enzymes that speeds up the breakdown of crbonhydrates

carrier
individual who is heterzygous for a faulty allele that causes a genetic disease in the homozygous form
3 of 19
catalyst
a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction. at the end of the reaction the catalyst remains chemically unchanged

cell wall
a rigid structure that surrounds the cells of living organisms apart from animals
6 of 19
cellulose
a big carbonhydrate molecule that makes up plant and algal cell walls

chain reaction
reactions in which one reaction causes further reactions, which in turn cause further reaction ect. a nuclear chain reaction occurs when fission neutrons cause further fission, so more fission neutrons are released. these go on to produce further fis

an explaination of chemical reaction in terms of reacting particles colliding with suffcient energy for a reaction to take place
13 of 19
concentration gradient
the gradient between an area where a substance is at a high concentration and an area where it is a low concentration
14 of 19
conservation of momentum
in a closed system, the total momentum before an event is equal to the total momentum after the event. momentum is conserved in any collision or explosion provided no external forces act on the objects that collide or explode

covalent bonding
the attraction between two atoms that share one or more pairs of electrons
