Worksheet: Surface Tension

In this worksheet, we will practice defining surface tension as a force exerted to expand a surface and calculating surface tensions for model systems.


In which of the following sequences are the compounds arranged in order of decreasing surface tension?

  • AWater > diethyl ether > 1-propanol > ethanol
  • BWater > 1-propanol > ethanol > diethyl ether
  • CEthanol > 1-propanol > water > diethyl ether
  • D1-Propanol > diethyl ether > ethanol > water
  • E1-Propanol > ethanol > water > diethyl ether
