Chapter 3 : Biological Molecules (Part II) 1. Two broad groups of lipids are fats and steroids. What property do these lipids share? Even though they are quite different chemically, they share a similar chemical foundation – how are they alike? 2. What is the generalized chemical structure of a fat? What functions do fats fulfill in the body? 3. What does it mean for a fat to be saturated or unsaturated? How does saturation of a fate relate to the solid or liquid state of the fat? 4. What are phospholipids and where are they found in the body? 5. Proteins are polymers constructed from what kind of monomers? What functions do proteins serve in the human body? What makes up the primary structure of proteins? 6. There are tens of thousands of different kinds of proteins; how can there be such diversity
