Homework Help: About the formation of bubbles

  1. Jun 19, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Well,actually it isn't related to my hw.I ask this just simply due to my curiosity.
    Here's the question:
    Sometimes,we saw bubbles formed on the water surface,could anyone explain this phenomenon:)?Any theorey behind it?
    thx a lot.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    um..I have no idea about this question.Pls forgive my foolishness.
    I have searched something called nucleation?It is too difficult for me,I can't get it at all.Moreover,it seems to explain about the formation of bubbles in fizzy drinks.How about in water?
