Be able to define the term "lipid" and to describe how this definition differs from that for the other major classes of biomolecules. 2. Be able to define the terms "saturated" and "unsaturated" as they pertain to fatty acids. Be able to recognize or draw the structures of any of the following fatty acids: palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, arachidonic acid. Be able to give the general structural features of these seven fatty acids, relative to the number of carbons, the configuration of the double bonds, and the location of the double bonds. 3.
