Question:-
Surface tension is due to
Option (A)
Viscous forces
Option (B)
Cohesion
Option(C)
Adhesion
Option(D)
The difference between adhesive and cohesive forces
Correct Option:
(B)
Question Solution:
Surface tension is due to cohesion between liquid particles at the surface, where as capillarity is due to both cohesion and adhesion
The property of cohesion enables a liquid to resist tensile stress, while adhesion enables it to stick to another body
