Science – what are polymers?

Polymers are substances formed from many basic compounds called monomers. If you have a given molecule and are able to insert many such molecules to form a fully functional bigger molecule, then you have a monomer in place.

The DNA, RNA, tons of types of plastics and cellulose are polymers. They all are build from many smaller chunks and fitted together to work as a whole. Learn more from the video from above.
