The monomers for the main Macromolecules goes as follows; Carbs- Monosaccharides, Lipids- Fatty Acid tails, Proteins- Amino Acids, Nucleic Acids-Nucleotides
Carbohydrates are used for quick energy, in foods like bread and pasta
Lipids are used for long term energy, and keeping warmth in the body, found in fats and oils
Proteins provide structure in the body like hair, skin, and nails. An example is enzymes, which speeds up chemical reactions.
