Homework Help: Lipid and protein

  1. Sep 18, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Proteins and lipids have some similar but also some different functions in living organisms. Describe these functions and explain why proteins and lipids are suitable for these functions.
    (It is a question for F.4)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I only knew the similarity of lipids and proteins is they both are energy source. And the difference is they are made up of different elements and have different structure. That is all I knew. How can I explain why proteins and lipids are suitable for these functions????? Help~~~~
