Pressure within a bubble revisited

Kent W. Mayhewa)

We shall reconsider the pressure within a bubble, when we take into account all the cohesive forces within a liquid, which surrounds a bubble. These principles will be applied to maximum bubble pressure method, providing a new plausible explanation as to why measured bubble’s pressures do not correlate with traditional Young–Laplace based theory. Finally, we shall explain why probes do not measure increased pressures within bulk liquids.


Nous allons réexaminer la pression à l'intérieur d'une bulle, lorsque nous prenons compte de toutes les forces cohesive au sein d'un liquide, qui entoure une bulle. Ces principes seront appliqués à une méthode de pression maximale dans une bulle, fournissant une nouvelle explication plausible pourquoi les pressions de bulle mesurée ne correspondent pas à la théorie traditionnelle de Young-Laplace. Enfin, nous allons expliquer pourquoi les sondes ne mesurent pas l'augmentation des pressions au sein de liquides en vrac.


Key words: Young–Laplace Equation; MBPM; Tensiometer; Bubble Pressure.
