If you were comparing a saturated fatty acid with an unsaturated fatty acid and both were the same length, how could you discriminate between the two?
I want to help you achieve amazing GCSE results!
Unsaturated fatty acids contain carbon double bonds which gives them a bent or non-linear shape whereas saturated fatty acids are straight hydrocarbon chains with no carbon double bonds.
