Question about How Do Viruses React To Soap? activity

Post by cwebste3 »

Your picture of a detergent molecule/micelle and the statement/description of a detergent molecule are contradictory to each other. The illustration says the heads are hydrophobic and tails hydrophilic, but the written statement says they are similar to the lipid membrane of a cell with hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails. Clarification or correction? Thank you.
