saturated fats- are evenly filled with hydrogen so the are able to stay solid at room temperature.

unsaturated fats- are unable to be solidafied at room temperature unless sombode manualy solidifies it. It will not stay solidified for very long at room temperature!

Is it possible to tell if the air is saturated by the information given on a Stuve graph?

Yes! You compare the dewpoint and temperature lines on the Stuve Chart. The closer the lines are together, the more saturated the air is. Hope this helps!

How could you compare a saturated solution to an unsaturated solution?

In a saturated solution, if you add any more of the substance that the solution is saturated with, it will either not dissolve or cause some of the existing solute to precipitate or separate. The one caveat is that it is possible to achieve a "supersaturated solution" by careful manipulation of a solution to bring it into a metastable state. One common way to achieve supersaturation is to cool a saturated solution in a container which is so smooth that it lacks nucleation sites.

How do membranes with low unsaturated lipids compare to those with high unsaturated lipids?

A high percentage of unsaturated phospholipids is more rigid. A low concentration is more flexible.

What is a fat that has one double bond between carbon atoms?

Those fatty acids which have several double bonds are called unsaturated fatty acids, for e.g, palmitoleic acid is of 16 carbon and contain one double bond at 9th position, Linoleic acid is consist of 18 carbon and have two double bond at 9th and 12th position respectively. Another is Arachidonic acid which is 20 carbon long and contain 4 double bonds on 5,8,11,14 position Unsaturated fatty acids are liquid at room temprature, and are loosley packed as compare to saturated fatty acids.

What is the difference between saturated fat and regular fat?

There is no way to compare saturated fat with regular fat because in that context, regular fat does not exist! Carbon compounds can form three types of attachments with other atoms. They can share a single bond, a double bond, or a triple bond. A saturated fat is a fat where every carbon atom is attached to every other atom by a single bond. A mono-unsaturated fat, is a fat that contains one double bond. Poly unsaturated fats contain many double bonds.
