Describe the arrangement of  phospholipid layer of cell membrane ?
Answer
Lipids are arranged in bilayer. The  polar head of the lipid head towards the outer sides forming a hydrophillic layer. The non-polar heads face towards the inner side forming the hydrophobic layer. The arrangement ensures that the nonpolar tail is protected from the aqueous enviroment. Lipid components mainly consist of phosphoglycerides.
