Surface tension

Surface tension


Surface tension is the elastic tendency of liquids that makes them acquire the least surface area possible. Surface tension causes insects (e.g. water striders), usually denser than water, to float and stride on the water surface.
At liquid-air interfaces, surface tension results from the greater attraction of liquid molecules to each other (due to cohesion) than to the molecules in the air (due to adhesion). The net effect is an inward force at its surface that causes the liquid to behave as if its surface were covered with a stretched elastic membrane.
