What is the checmical formula for the lipid?
Lipids are the chemical names of fats or molecules that are called fat soluble (dissolve in fat). They are called fatty acids and include fats, oils, waxes, cholesterol, sterolscertain, fat soluble vitamins like A, D and E monoglycerides, diglycerides, phospholipids, and others. Carboxylic acids and salts are detergents. The way they behave in water allows them to bond with other fatty acids such as food residue and are carried away in water.
There are thousands of lipid formulas that are involved in the chemical calculations for the different types of lipids.
Lipids constitute a broad group of naturally occurring molecules that include fats, waxes, sterols, fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E, and K), monoglycerides, diglycerides, triglycerides, phospholipids, and others. As each lipid differs in the attached fatty acids, there is no one formula to define a lipid.
