STP500: Surface Energetics

    Pages: 5    Published: Jan 1972


    The creation of more surface, as in the atomization of a liquid, requires an investment of energy. Part of this energy goes into the surface as free energy and is supplied by the mechanical agent creating the surface. The rest is contributed by the environment, generally as the heat influx required to maintain the experiment at its initial temperature, since surface formation causes a temperature drop.
