Problem 98P

Problem 98P

The surface tension of a liquid is to be measured using a liquid film suspended on a U-shaped wire frame with an 8-cm-long movable side. If the force needed to move the wire is 0.024 N, determine the surface tension of this liquid in air.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Introduction

Surface tension is the elastic tendency of a fluid surface which makes it acquire the least surface area possible.

Step 1

        Surface tension of liquid is the force per unit length.σs  =

In this case surface tension is is measured using a liquid film suspended on U shaped wire frame with an 8cm long movable side shown below

So the surface tension

σs  =

Where L is the length of the movable side

The reason for the term is because the film has two sides
