Surface Tension

Surface tension is the energy or force at the surface of a liquid that holds it together.

Surface Tension formula

\(\sigma = \frac {F} {l}   \)


\(\sigma\) (Greek symbol sigma) = surface tension

\(F\) = force per unit length

\(l\) = length of a surface ares that keep sliding side stationary
