Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The reason for fats to be a good source of energy for storage in the body should be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry, Chapter 21, Problem 21.2P , additional homework tip  1

Answer to Problem 21.2P

Long chain fatty acids are stored in terms of tri-glyceride in fat, thus during exercise, tri-glyceride breaks and forms Fatty acid which provides energy.

Explanation of Solution

Fats breaks in the flowing ways −.

Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry, Chapter 21, Problem 21.2P , additional homework tip  2

On, breaking Fats release Fatty acid. Those fatty acid a long chain fatty acid which contains high energy which flow through blood cells to supply energy to the body.

Conclusion

Thus, long chain fatty acids are stored in terms of tri-glyceride in fat, thus during exercise, tri-glyceride breaks and forms Fatty acid which provides energy.
