Abstract

A model is presented that explains the variation of surface tension of liquid water with temperature. The presence of non H-bonding H (NHB H) atoms (defining surface of assumed clusters) together with H-bonding atoms, is considered in this treatment. A good agreement between the experimental and computed values suggests the validity of this model. The change in the number of NHB H atoms and density account for the variation of surface tension with temperature. Previously, the same model was applied to explain the anomalous variation of density of liquid water with temperature [A. Khan et. al.: Chem. Phys. Lett. 266 (1997) 473].
