. RNA molecules have molar masses in the range of 20,000 to 40,000 g/mol. How does this molar-mass range compare to the molar mass of DNA?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The molar mass of DNA and RNA should be compared.

Concept Introduction:

DNA is located in the nucleus of cell. Nucleus of a cell contains DNA which carries hereditary information and helps in transfer of gene of interest from parents to progeny.

RNA gets transcripted from DNA and found on ribosome for further translation. Ribosome are membrane bound organelle found in cytoplasm or in RER.

Explanation

RNA consists of only single strand while DNA consisting of double stranded structure with sugar phosphate backbone. The molar mass range of DNA is 32000 to 64000 g/mol while for RNA it is up to 40000 g /mol...
