DOC: SURFACE TENSION - SCHOOL OF PHYSICS


Why can a steel needle float but a larger piece of steel sink? Ducks have drowned in farmyard ponds into which washing water was emptied or in streams polluted with non- degradable detergents. Why? Why can insects walk on water?... Document/File: .pdf, filesize: n/a. Filetype: pdf. Filename: surface-tension-school-of-physics. Title: SURFACE TENSION - School of Physics. 2014.

  SURFACE TENSION

... AT THE INTERFACE BETWEEN TWO MATERIALS PHYSICAL PROPERTIES CHANGE RAPIDLY OVER DISTANCES COM- PARABLE TO THE MOLECULAR SEPARATION SCALE. SINCE A MOLECULE AT THE INTERFACE IS EXPOSED TO A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT THAN INSIDE THE MATERIAL, IT WILL ALSO HAVE A DIFFERENT BINDING ENERGY. IN THE CONTINUUM LIMIT WHERE THE TRANSITION LAYER BECOMES A MATHEMATICAL SURFACE SEPARATING ONE MATERIAL FROM THE OTHER, THE DIFFERENCE IN MOLECULAR BINDING ENERGY MANIFESTS ITSELF AS A MACROSCOPIC SURFACE ENERGY DENSITY . AND WHERE ENERGY IS FOUND, FORCES ARE NOT FAR AWAY. ...

  SURFACE TENSION OF LIQUIDS MEASURED WITH THE STALAGMOMETER

... THE MOLECULES OF LIQUIDS ATTRACT EACH OTHER BY COHESIVE FORCES RESULTING INTO SMALL DISTANCES BETWEEN THE MOLECULES (ON THE ORDER OF 0.1 NM). THU S THE COMPRESSIBILITY OF LIQUIDS IS LOWER THEN THAT OF GAS, WHILE THE DENSITY IS MUCH HIGHER. ON THE OTHER HAND, THESE COHESIVE FORCES ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO RESULT INTO THE FIXED POSITION OF MOLECULES THAT CAN BE SEEN IN SOLID MATTER. LIQUIDS DO NOT KEE P A FIXED SHAPE, BUT ADAPT THE SHAPE OF A CONTAINER. ...

  NANOSCOPIC AND ELECTROCHEMICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF DEFECTS AND STRAIN AT SI WAFER SURFACES

... THE SURFACE PROPERTIES OF SI WAFERS MUST BE SUITABLY ALTERED TO ENHANCE THE DEVICE PERFORMANCE, AND HENCE, NEW METHODS THAT ALLOW PRECISE CONTROL OF THE SURFACE PROPERTIES ARE IN DEMAND. “DEFECTS” AND “STRAIN” AT THE SI CRYSTAL BRING ABOUT DEGRADATION OF THE DESIRED PROPERTIES. HOWEVER, DETAILED CHARACTERIZATION OF THESE DEFECTS AND STRAIN IS IMPORTANT SO THAT THEY CAN BE UTILIZED FOR “ENGINEERING” SI WAFER SURFACE. ...

  AQUATIC AERATION

... OXYGEN IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY WATER. WATER NATURALLY RECEIVES OXYGEN TWO WAYS: - AT THE SURFACE WHERE THE AIR AND WATER CONTACT EACH OTHER - FROM THE PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF ALGAE AND PLANTS BELOW THE WATER SURFACE. IN STAGNANT WATER THERE IS NO EXCHANGE OF OXYGEN AND WATER FORMS WELL DEFINED LAYERS OF DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES. AERATION ASSISTS IN OXYGENATING AND AGITATING THE WATER. IT ALSO PREVENTS WINTER ICE FROM SEALING THE POND SURFACE, ALLOWING OXYGEN TRANSFER. ...
