According to the BioTopics website, a disaccharide forms when two monosaccharides are joined. An example of this is two glucose molecules that are combined when using condensation reactions and water removal. More »

The general chemical formula for disaccharides is Cn(H2O)m. As a disaccharide, sucrose is composed of the monosaccharides glucose and fructose in the molecular formula C11H22O11. Other common disaccharides include lactos... More »

The two elements that make up a molecule of water are hydrogen and oxygen; there are two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, resulting in the chemical formula H2O. Hydrogen and oxygen bond together due to the number of e... More »

Hydrogen bonds hold together the atoms in a water molecule. A single water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. More »

The oxygen atom in a water molecule carries a partial negative charge, and the two hydrogen atoms carry a partial positive charge. Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen, so in a water molecule, the bonding electro... More »

The most abundant elements in ocean water are hydrogen and oxygen, the two elements that constitute the water molecule. Excluding the water molecule, the most abundant elements in ocean water are sodium and chlorine. More »
