Expert Answer

Step 1

Fats and oils are known as one of the most abundant triglycerides as these are esters which are composed of three units of fatty acids that are joined to glycerol.

Step 2

A cis configuration of a given fatty acid is the one in which two hydrogen atoms adjacent to the double bond gets stick to the same side of the hydrocarbon chain. This makes the double bond rigid and its conformation freezes and this configuration is also known to restrict the conformational freedom of the fatty acid. More the number of double bonds in a chain having the cis configuration, lesser will be its flexibility.

Step 3

On the other hand, the trans configuration of the double bonds contain two adjacent hydrogen atoms that lie on o...
