On what factor does the magnitude of the surface tension of a liquid depend?

The magnitude of the surface tension of a liquid depends on the intermolecular forces which are experienced by a molecule from all its sides.

Explanation

The tendency of fluid surfaces to shrink into the minimum surface area possible is referred to as surface tension. Scientifically we can defined surface tension as the phenomenon that arises when the surface of a liquid is in contact with another phase (can be a liquid ).

Factors that affect the magnitude of the surface tension of a liquid

Listed below are the factors that affect the magnitude of the surface tension of a liquid

  • Temperature
  • Intermolecular forces
  • Pressure
  • Viscosity
