Bond Number

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

Bond Number formula

\( Bond \; number   \;=\;    \frac { density \;\;x\;\;  acceleration \;\;x\;\;  length^2}    {  surface \; tension  } \)

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

Where:

\(Bo\) = Bond number

\(a\) = acceleration

\(l\) = length

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = density

\(\sigma\) = surface tension
