NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Biology Chapter 9 Biomolecules


Chemicals or molecules present in the living organism are known as biomolecules. Biomolecules are divided into two types- inorganic and organic. Inorganic biomolecules includes minerals, gases and water and organic biomolecules includes carbohydrates, fats, proteins, nucleic acids, vitamins, etc

Biomolecules include some important topics which enable students to understand the chemical composition. To be able to analyze a living tissue sample and identify a specific organic compound in higher classes, a fundamental understanding of different types of tissues, anatomy, morphology, the common site at which they are found, different functionalities they carry out, etc are equally required to comprehend concepts.

Students thus understand different chemical reactions and their conversions, role of enzymes, nature of different enzyme actions, various factors affecting the activity of enzymes, the classification and nomenclature of different enzymes.
