» Properties of Solids & Liquids » Surface Energy and Surface Tension

Appeared in Year: 2013

MCQ▾

### Question

Young-Laplace law states that the excess pressure inside a soap bubble of radius R is given by where σ is the coefficient of surface tension of the soap. The Eӧtvӧs number E0 is a dimensionless number that is used to describe the shape of bubbles rising through a surrounding fluid. It is a combination of g (the acceleration due to gravity), ρ (the density of the surrounding fluid), σ and a characteristic length scale L which could be the radius of the bubble. A possible expression for E0 is –

### Question

A solid expands upon heating because –

### Choices

Choice (4) Response

a.

The potential energy of interaction between atoms in the solid is asymmetric about the equilibrium positions of atoms.

b.

a fluid called the caloric flows into the interatomic spacing of the solid during heating thereby expanding it.

c.

The frequency of vibration of the atoms increases.

d.

The heating generates a thermal gradient between opposite sides.
