Sagittal section. portions. For instance, a sagittal plane still divides left from right whether it is on the midline (the midsagittal plane) or moved to the extreme left to separate the arm or the ear from the rest of the body. The same is true for the frontal and transverse planes when they are moved away from absolute center.

An organic compound is considered a carbohydrate when a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen atoms is joined with long or short chains of carbon atoms. A short chain of carbon atoms makes the carbohydrate a sugar. Glucose is the simplest sugar used and stored by the body, and it serves as the richest source of energy for cellular activities. The specific methods by which carbohydrates and glucose are utilized and stored in the body are discussed in greater detail in Chapters 6 and 14. Inorganic Salts Lipids Inorganic salts are compounds that break apart in water to release either positively or negatively charged atoms or molecules called ions.

1 ◗ Atoms combine to form a molecule. Every molecule of water (H2O) is made up of one atom of oxygen and two atoms of hydrogen. Inorganic Compounds Although there are a few exceptions, inorganic compounds are made of molecules that do not contain carbon atoms. The most common and important inorganic compounds found within the body’s cells and tissues are water, salts, acids, and bases. Water Electrolyte compounds that specifically release hydrogen ions (H+) when dissolved in water are called acids.
