Isomerisms types of unsaturated fatty acids, Biology

Unsaturated fatty acids show different types of  isomerisms. We have already learnt about the.concept of  isomerism  in  the  last unit. You would  realize that fatty acids with same molecular formula, as well as, same number of double bonds may differ in the  location of  double bonds  and exhibit positional  isomerism.
