Distinguish between organic and inorganic molecules?
See the explanation below.
Organic molecules are molecules that contain carbon-hydrogen bonds. Almost all organic molecules are hydrocarbons. They are called organic because they are essential for life to exist.
Some examples of organic molecules include:
Here is a picture of some more:
As you can see here, all of them contain carbon and hydrogen in their chemical structure.
I think you can guess then what are inorganic molecules. Well, they are molecules without carbon-hydrogen bonds. While they still can contain carbon compounds, such as
However, some are still essential for life, such as
But mainly, some can be quite common compounds, with examples like
Here are pictures of the compounds I've mentioned above:
I hope my explanation was clear!
