Figure 1) shows the bonding of the cytosine and guanine molecules. The O−H and H−N distances are each 0.11 nm . In this case, assume that the bonding is due only to the forces along the O−H−O, N−H−N and O−H−N combinations, and assume also that these three
This problem is asking to calculate the net force of the bonds between cytosine and guanine.
