Starch is a polysaccharide carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose monosaccharide units joined together by glycosidic bonds. Glycogen is a highly branched polymer.Cellulose is a polysaccharide. Cellulose is the structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants. 3. Animals store excess glucose molecules in glycogen. When the body needs energy, it breaks down glycogen granules, releasing glucose.

5.3 1. All lipids share one property. They are all nonpolar therefore they do not dissolve in water because they are fats. 2. Parts of a fat molecule are glycerol and 3 fatty acids. They all have carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. 3.Steroids consist of hydrocarbons in a ring while fats are linear. Steroids are also the precursors of hormones and fats are storage forms for energy. 4. The term unsaturated fat is referring to the healthier forms of fat. Unsaturated fats are a good substitute for saturated fats in your diet. These fats include monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.
