Asked by Sarah

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?

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.
