What are CHNOPS? These Chemical Elements = 98% of Life | Biology | Biochemistry
CHNOPS stands for Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, and Sulfur. These six elements make up 98% of living matter on Earth! How does that help you? If you understand the chemical behavior of CHNOPS, you can understand almost all of biochemistry. AP Hint! Every year, CHNOPS is the answer to a question on the Biology AP. :) In this video, we’ll take a closer look at these key elements and discuss where you will see them in living things. Jump to: 0:46 Carbon 1:51 Hydrogen 2:34 Nitrogen 3:04 Oxygen 3:36 Phosphorus 4:15 Sulfur 4:43 Calcium 5:16 Trace Elements We challenge you to name a biological molecule made only of CHNOPS or a subset of these elements. Write your answer in the comments! Our series on Biology is aimed at the first-year college level, including pre-med students. These videos should also be helpful for students in challenging high school biology courses. Perfect for preparing for the AP Biology exam or the Biology SAT. Also appropriate for advanced homeschoolers. You can also follow along if you are just curious, and would like to know more about this fascinating subject. Our current biology textbook recommendation is Campbell Biology from Pearson. 10th edition Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2mahQTi 11th edition Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2m7xU6w ***** This video was made possible by the generous donations of our Patrons on Patreon!

She then continued her studies in Molecular Biology (focusing on Immunology and Neurobiology) at Princeton University, where she began teaching as a graduate student. Her success in teaching convinced her to leave the glamorous world of biology research and turn to teaching full-time, accepting a position at an exclusive prep school, where she taught biology and chemistry for eight years. She is now the head writer and producer of Socratica Studios.
