Conclusion
11
Martin
Horsch

The virial (Irving
-
Kirkwood) and variational (test area) approaches
γ
.

Without knowledge of the surface tension, it is impossible to
R
L
of the surface of tension.

In terms of the capillarity radius
R
0
R
L
) and the pressure
difference
Δ
p
R
L
), Tolman’s approach can still be applied.

For the LJTS fluid, the planar limits of the Tolman length
δ
and the
η
are smaller in magnitude than
ζ
.

This result is consistent with “Tolman’s scenario” (
R
→ 0 and
γ
→ 0)
for the spinodal limit, if
δ
does not depend on higher powers of
Δ
p
.
