Step 2

Lipids refer to organic biochemicals such as fats, oils, sterols, phospholipids, lipoproteins and waxy elements.

Lipids are made up of the same elements as carbohydrates: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. However, lipids tend to contain many more hydrogen atoms than oxygen atoms. One main characteristic of lipids is that they do not dissolve in water.

Step 3

Characteristics of Lipids are given by,

Lipids store energy and are structural components of cell membranes and help in the synthesis of vitamins and hormones.
