Part of the power of Gauss' law in evaluating electric fields is that it applies to any surface. It is often convenient to construct an imaginary surface called a Gaussian surface to take advantage ...
This interferometer makes use of multiple reflections between two closely spaced partially silvered surfaces. Part of the light is transmitted each time the light reaches the second surface, ...
Description of how the properties of water such as surface tension, specific heat and phase changes enable life on earth.
Properties of water including state changes, adhesion and cohesion, capillary action and surface tension.
Capillary action is the result of adhesion and surface tension. Find out all about it on this excellent site.
An experiment from our Physics To Go series about surface tension and air pressure. All you need is a large glass, ashtray or similar, water, handkerchief or similar.
Short definitions for topics related to tension (some areas unfinished).
A Marvin and Milo activity about surface tension. All you need is a shallow bowl, food colouring, washing up liquid and milk.
A Marvin and Milo activity about the coanda effect and surface tension. All you need is a jug, water, about 50cm of string and a basin or sink.
A Marvin and Milo activity about surface tension. All you need is five wooden toothpicks, a small sponge, a plate and water.
