## When the temperature increases, the angle of contact of liquid __________.

**A**

## decreases

**B**

## increases

**C**

## remain the same

**D**

## None of these

Medium Open in App Solution Verified by Toppr

Correct option is A)

## As the temperature increases, the surface tension and cohesive force among liquid molecules weakens, so the angle of contact with solid surface decreases.

The correct answer is option 3) i.e. Decreases

CONCEPT:

Surface tension is the tendency of water molecules to adhere to each other so as to form the minimum surface area **possible**.

This is a result of cohesion **between water molecules**.

Consider a solid surface with a liquid placed over it as shown.

Here θMath input error

Math input error

is the **contact angle** made by the liquid with the solid surface due to surface tension.

Molecules at the surface of a liquid are partly exposed to the surrounding. The molecules at the liquid-air interface experience fewer interactions and have more energy to escape to the surrounding.

The stronger **the intermolecular interaction of the liquid**, the greater **is the ****cohesion.**

**EXPLANATION:**

****When the temperature of the liquid is increased, the molecular vibration increases, and thus the

**intermolecular forces weaken**. This reduces the surface tension and cohesion.

When surface tension reduces, the **tendency of the liquid to form minimum surface area reduces**. This means the liquid tends to spread over the surface.

Thus, the **contact angle decreases.**
