  • Surface tension is defined as the force per unit length acting at right angles to an imaginary line drawn on the free surface of the liquid. 
  • When a liquid is in contact with a solid, the angle between the tangent drawn to the free surface of the liquid and the surface of solid at the point of contact measured inside the liquid is called the angle of contact.
