I can answer #2 for you considering I did my research on it. A micelle would be a spherical structure of docecyl sulfate chains. Dodecyl chain >> C-C-C-C-C-C-C-C-C-C-C-C-SO4 Excluding hydrogens. Have you ever seen a froosh ball, its one of those rubber toys with things sticking out of it. A micelle would appear the same way. Imagine the center and the carbon ends of the chain will all point toward the middle making the middle of the sphere where the charge will be positive and the sulfates will be pointed out from the center of the sphere.If you want email me at chemphreak_2000@yahoo.com and I can send you a picture of one.
