Compare the surface tension of various liquids
 Introduction
I have seen leaking faucets and leaking roofs many times. It is still amusing and interesting to see how the drops of water form, slowly grow, and finally fall.

Obviously, there is some sort of stickiness between the water molecules and the leaking object that keeps the water drops hanging there. 

Later in a camping trip I saw mosquitoes that land on the water. I could see that their weight has actually pushed the water surface inward. I wondered why they didn't get wet and why their legs didn't go under the water.

This project is an opportunity to research on the tension between molecules of various liquids. 

 
 Project description
In this project you design and perform experiments to test the surface tension of various liquids. You will also experiment to see how you can modify the surface tension of water.
