Generally yes, very much so. It's quite polar.

If you mean ac acidic oxide, then yes. This oxide, which usually exists as the dimer P4O10 reacts with water to form phosphoric acid.

P4O10 + 6H2O --> 4H3PO4

Which end of a phospholidid is attracted to water?

The hydrophilic head which is made up of a phosphate group and a polar molecule.


Is a phosphate head hydrophilic?

Yes, it is. The phosphate group is polar, and is attracted to water, which is also polar. Hydrophilic = attracted to water. The oxygens are very electronegative and carry a partial negative charge. This is attracted to the partial positive hydrogens of water, forming hydrogen bonds.


What are characteristics of phospholipids?

They have a hydrophilic head which contains a phosphate group and hydrophobic heads that are made up of chains of fatty aids.


What can the head of a phospholipid be described as?

The head of a phospholipid is a phosphate group and is hydrophilic, which means it is attracted to water, in particular the intracellular and extracellular fluids.

Which end of the plasma membrane is hydrophilic?

The "head" of the membrane, the phosphate.


The polar head of a phospholipid is made of what molecules?

Phospholipids are made up of both water loving, and water repelling materials. They head, which is made of glycerol, is water repelling and therefore forms the outer and inner parts of the cell, away from the water. Where as the tails are made up of fatty acids that are water loving and point in between the heads, and into the water between the two glycerol layers.
