Solution

## The correct option is: D: 24Nm−2 Given : Surface tension, S=0.072Nm−1 Diameter of water drop, D=1.2mm=0.012m D=1.2mm=0.012D = 1.2mm = 0.012mmThus radius of drop r=0.012m2 Excess pressure inside water drop, Δp=2Sr ΔP=2Sr\Delta P = \dfrac{2S}{rΔp=2×0.0720.0122=24Nm−2∴\therefor ΔP=2×0.0720.006=24\Delta P = \dfrac{2\times 0.072}{0.006} = 24
