SURFACE TENSION

The elastic-like force in a body, especially a liquid, tends to minimize, or constrict, the area of the surface. Surface tension works by being influenced by the changes of the temperature, as in when the temperature decreases, so does the surface tension. The water molecule’s polar nature is what produces the surface tension. During the liquid phase, the surface tension comes about from more cohesion amongst the liquid molecules than to the air molecules.
