2. Cooperate with three other groups (plus your group = 4 groups), one having a glycerol molecule. Remove an H from the hydroxide side of the glycerol and an OH from the carboxyl side of the fatty acid and join together. Combine the H and OH. Do the same for the other two fatty acids.
1. What is the name of the final assembled molecule?
2. As far as the joining and separating of molecules, how does this differ from the processes in proteins and carbohydrates? How is it similar?
3. What is the difference in the two fatty acids shown above? How does that make a difference in the characteristics of the final molecule?
