Question

In the soap micelles


  1. The ionic soap is on the surface of the cluster while the carbon chains  is in the interior of the cluster.

  2. Both ionic end and carbon chain are in interior of the cluster

  3. Both ionic end and carbon chain are on the exterior of the cluster

  4. Ionic end of soap is in the interior of the cluster and the carbon chain is out of the cluster


Solution

The correct option is A

The ionic soap is on the surface of the cluster while the carbon chains  is in the interior of the cluster.


The ionic end of soap is on the surface of the cluster while the carbon chain is in the interior of the cluster. This happens so because the ionic end is hydrophillic, thus, maintains contact with water whereas the carbon end is hydrophobic in nature, thus, maintains a contact with the dirt or oil particles.
