Mostly storing energy but aslo as structural support. ;)
A) Lipids are a source of stored energy
Whereas carbohydrates provide a readily available source of energy, lipids function primarily as an energy reserve. The amount of lipids stored as an energy reserve far exceeds the energy stored as glycogen since the human body is simply not capable of storing as much glycogen compared to lipids.
Answer No 1:
Phospholipids are made up of phosphorus head and two fatty acid molecules. These phosphorus head and fatty acid tail is joined together by glycerol. Fatty acid molecules are made up of Carbon, hydrogen and oxyge. Hence,carbon and hydrogen can be said as two other elements present in phospholipids.
Answer No 2:
The building blocks of lipids are glycerol and fatty acids.
Lipids can be described as vital organic molecules which are not soluble in water. They are made up of chains of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Someof the examples of lipids are fats and oils. Lipids are the main molecules present in an organisms cell membrane and hence have huge biological importance.
Answer No 3:
Lipids are biologically important molecules as they play very vital roles in the functioning of an organisms body. Two of the functions of lipids are:Lipids and phosphorus molecules combine to form phospholipids. The phospholipids are the main molecules out of which the cell membrane is made. Hence, lipids play an essential role in providing the cell membrane its structure. Lipids store energy and provide insulation to the body of an organism.
B.) is the correct answer
Determine which function produces the same graph as .
f(x) = 4x
f(x) = 42x
f(x) = 83x
f(x) = 162x
(its the 2nd one)
the correct option will be option B. (Lipids make leaves waterproof)
Lipids are a class of compounds which are insoluble in water but are soluble in organic solvents and plays important roles in animal and plants.
Lipids form a class of molecules called Waxes which are long chain non-polar lipid formed by fatty acids and alcohols (–OH) group.Plants use these waxes as a protective coating which prevents water from sticking on surfaces due to hydrophobic tails in their structure.
thus option B is the correct answer.
your answer will be a. sorry if im wrong: )
i think the answer would be b.
