    Hydrolysis let's break it down; Hydro = water Lysis = breaking So we are breaking a molecule down by using water. Dehydration synthesis De hydration = removal of water Synthesis = building up. We build up a molecule by removing water. Or we start building up a Marco molecule by removal of water. I'm using the phone app now so I'll draw it out for you to show you how these happen.

    Consider we have a carboxylic acid and a amine |dw:1441582816696:dw| |dw:1441583006400:dw| |dw:1441583224977:dw| we lost water and we joined these two molecules together so (LOSS of water) = dehydration, and SYNTHESIS means we formed a new compound.

    |dw:1441583445913:dw| try to follow through my poor drawings lol. In this reaction, we use water as a means of breaking a molecule down, Hydro = means water usage, and lysis means breaking, we broke the bond in a molecule and formed two molecules as a result.
