electronegativity – attraction of a particular atom for the electrons of a covalent bond
systematics – the classification of living organisms in terms of their natural relationships; it includes describing, naming, and classifying the organisms
cell theory – all organisms are made of cells, all existing cells are produced by other living cells, the cell is the most basic unit of life

carbohydrate – molecule composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen; includes sugars and starches.
What is caused when the eyeball is too long or then lens is too rounded? – Short sightedness- the image gets focused in front of the retina.

and acid-neutralizing
buffers into the small
concentration – a measurement of how much solute exists within a certain volume of solvent

Nucleus – in an atom, the core of protons and neutrons; in a eukaryotic cell, the organelle that contains most of the DNA and directs most of the cell's activities
