At room temperature, the surface tension of water is 72.0 mJ·m–2. What is the energy required to change a spherical drop of water with a diameter of 1.20 mm to five smaller spherical drops of equal size? The surface area of a sphere of radius r is 4π r2 and the volume is 4π r3/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find the volume of the large drop, find its surface tension divide the volume by 5, then find the surface tension of the drop that has that volume multiply by 5 compare the energy of the large drop to the 5 smaller ones
