glycerol portion consists of 3 carbon atoms each with an attached Oxygen atom and the necessary hydrogen atoms to make carbon's desired 4 bonds
Fatty Acid chains consists of carbon atoms raging from 4-24 carbons in length
There are three classifications of lipids based on the number of fatty acid chains present and they are monoglyceride, diglyceride, triglyceride
At room temperature, saturated fatty acids (originate from animal source) are solid
At room temperature, unsaturated fatty acids (originate from plant source) are liquid
saturated fatty acids have what kind of bond present in the fatty acid chain only single carbon bonds
Unsaturated fatty acids have what kind of band present in the fatty acid chain double bond
Hydro water
phobic resisting or fearing
philic attracting or loving
hydrophilic water soluble = miscible
hydrophobic = Lipids water insoluble = immiscible
Lipids can be converted into fuel (glucose) for living things through the work of enzymes
