1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If we know the surface tension of a liquid how can we find the binding energy of the molecules of the liquid if we have a simple cubic structure and we know the distance between the atoms?

2. Relevant equations
The surface tension is $$Tension= \frac{F}{l}$$ and is known.
so its N/m
