Bond Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Bond number is a dimensionless number that represents the relationship of gravitational force to surface tension force.

formula

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

Where:

\(Bo\) = Bond number

\(\rho\) = density

\(a\) = acceleration

\(L\) = length

\(\sigma\) = surface tension
