Few things you need to know
01. Cohesive force: Force of attraction
/ repulsion between the molecules of
the same substance is called as
cohesive force.
02. Adhesive force: Force of
attraction between the molecules of
different substances is called as
adhesive force.
In general the intermolecular force is
of the order of 10
-11
N where as
gravitational force is 10
-50
N
Intermolecular distances are of the
order of 10
-10
m
 Range of molecular attraction: Maximum
distance up to which cohesive force
exerted by molecule is effective is called as
range of molecular attraction. Range of
molecular attraction is generally of the
order of 10
²9
m in case of solids and
liquids.
Sphere of influence
:An imaginary sphere
of radius equal to
molecular range
drawn with molecule
as center is called as
sphere of influence.
Surface Energy. Potential energy per unit
surface area of liquid surface is called as
surface energy.
 It is clear that molecule on the surface of
liquid possesses more potential energy than a
molecule in the interior of a liquid. To reduce
this energy liquid will try to reduce surface
area
 The tendency of liquid to reduce its surface
area is called as Surface tension.
¬vv¡=·÷ f÷u·1·u
 If surface area is to be reduced then the
force must act in tangential direction to
surface. This force must act at ¶endµ of liquid
surface hence it is defined as ²
 Force due to Surface Tension: Tangential
Force per unit length acting at right angle on
either side of imaginary line drawn on the
free surface of liquid is called as surface
tension of liquid.
 T = F/L SI unit of surface tension is N/m.
CGS unit of surface tension is dyne/cm this
unit is same as that of force constant

Relation between surface tension & surface energy:
 Consider an open
rectangular frame ABCD of
a wire.
 Wire PQ is able to slide
over the rectangular frame
without friction. Length of
wire PQ is equal to ¶L¶.
 Let rectangular frame
ABCD is dipped in soap
solution. Soap Film is
formed in the region ABQP.
Due to surface tension
soap film tries to contract
in area.

Relation between surface tension & surface energy:
Therefore a force ´Fµ acts
On wire PQ. Direction of this
force is towards AB.
Magnitude of force ¶F· =T
(2L) Factor ¶2· is because,
soap film has two surfaces
front surface & back surface
in contact with wire.
Let wire PQ is pulled away
from AB in order to increase
area of film. Mechanical
force required to pull the
wire PQ is F

in magnitude but F = -F·
@F· = T x 2l.
If wire PQ is displaced through dx. Then work
done during this displacement:
dW = F·. dx = - T 2 L dx = ² T.dA
(Where dA = 2L.dx) dW = ² T.dA.

 Work done in
(i) forming a soap bubble of radius R is
T. dA = T. 2.(4TR

during
formation of soup bubble energy will
be absorbed, due to which the
temperature will fall down in
adiabatic process, chemically such
reactions are called as endothermic
reactions.

equal radius ¶r· is

T (n ² n

When a big drop is broken into large number of
small drops, then energy is absorbed because
the surface area increases.
Above result is obtained by using
(4/3)Tn.r

Energy liberated in combining n
equal drops of radius r to form a big
drop of radius R is obtained by using

When a large number of drops
combine to form a big drop, then the
energy will be liberated because the
surface area decreases, due to
which the temperature will increase
in adiabatic process, chemically
such reactions are called as
exothermic reactions.
Angle of contact
When a liquid is in contact with solid, the liquid
surface at the point of contact is curved. The angle
between the tangent drawn to liquid surface at
point of contact and solid surface measured inside
the liquid is called as angle of contact. Angle of
contact may have any value between 0
0
and 135
0
.
Angle of contact
 Angle of contact is constant for given solid liquid
pair. For liquid, which merely wets the solid, angle
of contact is 90
o
e.g. water + silver.
 liquid, which partially wets the solid, angle of
contact is acute Kerosene + glass or usual water +
glass
 liquids which completely wets the solid angle of
contact is 0
o
eg. Pure Water + glass,
 For liquid, which does not wet the solid, angle of
contact is obtuse e.g. mercury + glass.
Explanation of angle of contact
Various forces acting on molecule ¶A· are
 Negligible weight of molecule , which acts
vertically down ward
 Adhesive force F
A
by solid molecule acting at
right angle to solid.
 Cohesive force F
C
in side liquid by molecules of
same liquid act at 45
o
to surface.
 Adhesive force by air molecules which is very
small and hence it is neglected. This force is
negligible because very small number of air
molecules are present in sphere of influence.
Direction of resultant vector decides shape of
liquid at the point of contact in particular the
liquid surface must be normal to resultant.
