A thin plate is used to determine interfacial equilibrium and surface tension at air-liquid or liquid-liquid interfaces. The vertically oriented plate is for the interface and the force is applied to measure the surface tension. This is a universal method that is mainly suitable for surface tension testing at long intervals. A known perimeter is connected to the vertical plate balance, and due to wetting, the force is measured.
