The SI unit N/m is right.

Stress = P/A =N/sqm.

In this why the tensions are not measured in kg?

Does kg represent load?

Surface tension is a force (N) acting over a surface area (A) having unit width.

So, Area= (1*m). Therefore, answer must be N/m.

Surface tension is a force applied on the surface to the length of the surface.

In cgs its unit is = dyne/cm.

Force per unit lenth, ie = f/l = N/M.

N/m is the correct answer.

Malvi said:   8 years ago
Surface tension = force /area.
So, Nm/m2.
=> N/m or J/m2.

It should be force per unit area.
