Answer to Question #57948 in Physical Chemistry for austin Christian okpa
Surface tension is as a result of ----
Surface tension is a result of the fact that the molecules adjacent to the surface energy state are different from a screen . For internal molecules resultant of all the intermolecular interactions is zero and for surface molecules , it is perpendicular to the surface of the inside phase with a large intermolecular interaction . Surface molecules are drawn into the interior of the liquid , and the internal pressure occurs .
