A Hamaker constant and effective attraction

  1. Aug 7, 2018 #1
    Hello,

    According to the following equation describing the effective Hamaker constant of two identical bodies immersed in a liquid : AALA = (AA1/2 - AL1/2)2, for high values of AL, the effective attraction of the A-like media is larger than in vacuum. How is this possible physically ?
