    Maybe the bond breaks? and there is no surface tension?

    i dont need a guess there are more option from which it is correct a)becomes infinity b)is equal to the value at room temperature c)is half to the value at room temp. d)zero now how u compare??

    definitely the value of surface tension FOR THE MOLECULES AT THE SURFACE reduces becomes 0 as wat is surface tension?

    hmm..this is the tendecy of force to reduce its surface area as much as possible

    yes that is because the surface tension forces are attractive and bind the molecules very close to one another so wat happens when there is a state when this surface tension is escaped,that is when it begings to reach the boiling point molecules evaporate and if there is still surface tension to prevent it it wont boil! so there should be no force,these are overcome reducing their effect to null efeect
