Some of the molecules found in the human body are NH2CH2COOH (glycine), C6H12O6 (glucose),and CH3(CH2)16COOH (stearic acid). The bonds they form are
Ionic
Covalent
Metallic
Nuclear

Answer :

Answer:

covalent bonds

Explanation:

The organic molecules:

  • glycine (NH2CH2COOH),
  • glucose (C6H12O6), and
  • stearic acid (CH3(CH2)16COOH)

are composed of only:

  • Carbon,
  • Oxygen, and
  • Hydrogen.

These are all nonmetallic elements. Therefore, the bonds between them are covalent.

Covalent bonds form between nonmetals. It involves a sharing of electron pairs.

An ionic bond forms between a metal and a nonmetal. It involves a transfer of electrons from an anion (− ion) to a cation (+ ion).
