Capillarity, wetting, and surface (interfacial) tension

Bob Aveyard

in Surfactants: In Solution, at Interfaces and in Colloidal Dispersions

Published in print:
2019
Published Online:
December 2019
ISBN:
9780198828600
eISBN:
9780191867125
Item type:
chapter
Publisher:
Oxford University Press
DOI:
10.1093/oso/9780198828600.003.0003
Subject:
Physics, Condensed Matter Physics / Materials, Soft Matter / Biological Physics

Capillarity reflects the action of interfacial tension and has been central to understanding intermolecular forces. When a liquid meets a solid surface (with contact angle θ‎) it forms a meniscus ... More
