surface tension of water
« on: October 29, 2020, 06:40:41 PM »
I have been assigned a final project in grade 12 chemistry class.  For this project, we are required to have a contact who is knowledgeable in the area we are researching.  If someone is able to answer a few questions about the surface tension of water and how solutes and other factors effect it, it would be greatly appreciated.
1. How can solutes cause an increase/decrease in the surface tension of water?
2. Does temperature have an effect?
3. What causes a meniscus to form?
4. What other factors can change the surface tension of water?
