Our interest in this area arose from a need to measure small interfacial tensions (around lmN/m) for a vegetable oil / silicone oil system that was used in a thermocapillary drop migration experiment (Rashidnia Interfacial or surface tension exists when two phases are present. All interfacial tensions are the direct results of intermolecular interactions at interfaces, which involve dispersion (Fowkes, 1964) and nondispersion contributions (Carre, 2007). Surface tension is defined as the force parallel to the surface perpendicular to a unit length line drawn on the surface. The algorithms used to infer i nterfacial tension from the geometrical profile of the pendant drop are described in details, in parti cular a new
The experiment results show that the nanofluids can decrease the IFT between water and oil phases and make the solid surface more neutral wet. The units of surface tension are Nm-1. The fresh LS with 0%, 2%, 4% and 6% SDS were slowly dropped into beaker through a plastic dropper, and the dodecane representing agent with non-polarity or lower polarity was employed to form an interface with LS. Interfacial tension and surface pressure of these particles are of great interest because they are related to the shape and the stability of the droplets and to protein adsorption at the interface. Surface tension is the tendency of liquid surfaces to shrink into the minimum surface area possible. Interfacial tension is the force that holds the surface of a particular phase together and is normally measured in dynes/cm. The interfacial tension between two liquids is measured by the drop weight method. K Maneeintr 1, T Meekoch 1 and T Boonpramote 1.

The interfacial tension is related to the heights of the liquids in the cups of the U-tube above the interface in the capillary. Surface tension allows insects (e.g. water striders), usually denser than water, to float and slide on a water surface. These phases can be gas/oil, oil/water, or gas/water. Especially within the surface technology the surface tension has become a permanent measuring and controlling variable. Interfacial tension measurements were conducted on a surface tension meter (K100, German KRUSS, Germany).
