    If pH<pI would the overall charge on the amino acid be positive or negative? And why?

    pH<pI = positive
    pH>pI = Negetive
    pH=pI = Isoelectric

    If it is acidic ie ph<pi there would be more protons on the amino acid, making it positive, if it is in basic solution, the protons would be stripped off making the amino acid negative.
