Problem 88P

What is surface tension? What is it caused by? Why is the surface tension also called surface energy?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1

The tension experienced by the molecules on the surface  due to attraction force is called surface tension.Most of the molecules in a liquid have several neighboring molecules that they interact with, but the molecules along the surface have no neighboring molecules above them, which increases the strength of the surface molecules with each other.
