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.

Surface strain is the imperativeness, or work, required to grow the surface region of a liquid due to intermolecular forces. Since these intermolecular forces vary dependent upon the possibility of the liquid (e.g. water versus fuel) or solutes in the liquid (e.g. surfactants like chemical), each course of action indicates changing surface weight properties. Notwithstanding whether you know it or not, you starting at now have seen surface weight at work. you can take refference from here they explained it very clearly.

My guess would be English as a second language.
Looks like I'm not the only one, viewtopic.php?f=2&t=125621&p=4415940#p4416025 though there may be other posibilities
