Carbon Atom

Post by Costa » Thu Dec 08, 2005 4:24 am

I have to write a story about a carbon atom and how that carbon atom travels through someone else's body into mine.

we have to include facts about for example how the carbon atom went from the amino acid of the protein to the pyruvate and out to the blood stream, through the vein, and so on.

I will sooner or later sit down and write this story but I just wanted to see if some members would help a little bit along the way.

Thanks everyone!

One legend comes to my mind, Odysseus and how he survives but almost all his unnamed crew dies :)

nobody burry him? why?

I think you should start with plants and photosynthesis. Organic compound formation. Then a cow eat that then you eat that. And that is yours. After that you leave some organic material, that is decomposed into inorganic then the plant take it.

You can (and I think should better) make it as a cycle.

Yup, I think it's a suitable title for your composition.... :lol:
First of all, you have to decide the start of the Carby's jurney (there's no real start because Carby's journey is you've to decide it by your own) und then just refer to the book about what route does the Carby take for this journey... :lol:
