Surface tension is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a liquid is in contact with a gas; the surface of the liquid acts as if it were a thin elastic sheet. Surface tension is caused when intermolecular forces draw the liquid particles together, as shown in the drawing immediately below. Because the molecules at the surface are not surrounded by other molecules, they are more strongly attracted to other molecules at the surface, which creates a pseudo-film at the surface.
