States of Matter

MCQ
Q&A
Question:

Assertion (A): Liquids tend to have maximum number of molecules at their surface.
Reason (R): Small liquid drops have spherical shape.
(a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A.
(b) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.
(c) A is true but R is false.
(d) A is false but R is true.

Answer:

(d) Liquid tends to acquire minimum surface area due to surface tension. Thus, small liquid drops are spherical. In spherical shape, surface area is minimum.
