CBSE Class 9 Answered

why a water droplet always forms a spherical shape?
Asked by luckyali55 | 09 Oct, 2009, 05:19: PM
Expert Answer

Because of surface tension.

Imagine it like a stretched elastic membrane, which tries to minimize the area. Similarly water surface behaves in the same way, and since sphere has the minimum area for a given volume, the water droplets are spherical.
