Which property is shared by all members of the lipid class?
Similarly, you may ask, what property is shared by all lipids?
All lipids contain a hydrophilic and hydropobic component. Lipids are characterized by their physical property, solubility- instead of a shared chemical structure. What distinguishes hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules? (See pg.
Also Know, what characteristic is not shared by all lipids? One characteristic that all lipids share, however, is that they are all hydrophobic. This means that lipids are not soluble in water. The hydrophobic nature of lipids has important consequences for how lipids are used, transported, and metabolized in organisms.
Also question is, what property is shared by lipids and carbohydrates?
Explanation: Carbohydrates and lipids both are the biomolecules which are composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in different proportions. The lipids have greater ratio of hydrogen to oxygen than that of carbohydrates. The lipid molecules contain more energy per gram of the carbohydrates.
What are the members of the lipid family?
triglycerides, phospholipids, sterols.
