Now that you have learned about molecules, can you explain how Dawn dish soap removes oil from birds?

Recognizing biology in your everyday life requires observation, inquiry, and critical thinking. As you seek to apply the knowledge you have gained in this lesson, consider the following questions:

  1. How has learning about molecules changed your behavior?
  2. What are some nonpolar molecules that you encounter every day?
  3. Why are nonpolar molecules insoluble in water?

As you continue studying biology, consider how the molecules you encounter follow the rules you have learned in this lesson.
