    it's a chemical reaction between an alcohol group (on the glycerol) and a carboxylic acid (from the fatty acid) called "esterification", creates an ester bond/functional group. It is also a "condensation" reaction because it creates a water molecule.

    1) A saturated fat becoming unsaturated 2) A fat molecule forming through dehydration synthesis 3) The saturation of a triglyceride molecule 4) Dehydration synthesis breaking down a fat molecule Save

    well there is not breakdown of a fat molecule. you're taking a fatty acid (a fat molecule) and glycerol and making a monoglyceride (another fat molecule)

    I dont know too much about the topic but I know that https://njvs.desire2learn.com/content/enforced/12833-3987/0201ChemistryofLife(Honors)/image0024e394529.jpg?_&d2lSessionVal=8K2OZ6AZcXY7nFCWJJffDXYgd same picture comes up when I type in google images ) Dehydration synthesis breaking down a fat molecule

    i can tell you that it's not a breakdown of a fat molecule, but you are free to make the choice you seem fit
