Surface tension and binding energy

  1. Oct 21, 2007 #1
    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 [tex]Tension= \frac{F}{l}[/tex] and is known.
    so its N/m


    3. The attempt at a solution
