What are the attractive forces that increase surface tension?
-Would it be cohension and adhension? Thanks

    Is adhesion an attractive force?

  • Chemistry -

    Quotes from wiki "Adhesion is the tendency of dissimilar particles or surfaces to cling to one another" So I'm thinking it is an attractive force? Thanks
