How to Calculate and Solve for Liquid interface | Nucleation Energies

Last Updated on December 12, 2022

The image of liquid interface is represented below.

To compute for liquid interface, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Solid Interface (γSI), Solid – Liquid Interface (γSLand cosθ.

The formula for calculating liquid interface:

γIL = γSI + γSLcosθ


γSI = Solid Interface
γSL = Solid – Liquid Interface
γIL = Liquid Interface

Let’s solve an example;
Find the liquid interface when the solid interface is 10, the solid – liquid interface is 5 and the cosθ is 2.

This implies that;

γSI = Solid Interface = 10
γSL = Solid – Liquid Interface = 5
cosθ = 2

γIL = γSI + γSLcosθ
γIL = 10 + 5(2)
γIL = 10 + (10)
γIL = 20

Therefore, the liquid interface is 20.
