Bond Number

Bond number ( \(Bo\) ) (dimensionless number) represents the relationship of gravitational force to surface tension force.

Bond Number formula

\(\large{ Bo = \frac { \rho a l^2}    {\sigma}  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Bo }\) = Bond number

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ l }\) = length

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = density

\(\large{ \sigma }\) = surface tension
