What is surface tension of water?



if the person is shown to have +90n, then ans is -10n.

if the person is shown to have -90n, then ans is +10n.

The answer is a i think
Surface tension could be defined as the property of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force. The cohesive forces among liquid molecules are responsible for the phenomenon.

In simpler terms, it is the force that causes the molecules on the surface of a liquid to be pushed together and form a layer. The surface tension, then, is a measure of the cohesive forces that hold the molecules together.

Getting the actual measurement would give us 72 dynes/cm at 25°C . However, the force decreases significantly depending on the temperature.

Do you know the answer?
