how do you determine amino acids and peptides from proteins????
amino acids are joined together by reaction between the amine group (NH2) and the carboxylic group. This bond is called peptide bond Two amino acids are a dipeptide, three are a dipeptide, and many (prolly about 100) are a polypeptide. Many polypeptides join together yo form proteins, so protiens are thousands of amino acids joined togteher by peptide bonds

BOTH two and three amino acids are called dipeptides? or is that a typo?

i think it was just a typo two amino acids are dipeptide and three are tripeptide, (lol something i actually know haha)

and im far from a chem freak lol, i struggle to understand simple stuff as you could see by my stupid question

only 3 more days an it'll all be done ahhhhhhhhhhhhh the freedom of no more chemistry ever again
