How to calculate the surface tension between water and pure oxygen gas

Postby liyifanlimeng » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:36 pm UTC

I tried to find the method online but could only find the surface tension between water and air at 20C is about 0.072 N/m.

Are there any method to calculate the surface tension between water- hydrogen, water-oxygen?

You can design an experiment to work it out. It doesn't look like there's an easy way to derive this from first principles.

Surface tension depends (almost) only on the liquid. For example, water in vacuum has almost the same surface tension as water in air.
