Soap Bubbles: A Scientific View. Because of the
remaining surface tension, a soap film always pulls in as tightly as it can,
just like a stretched balloon. A soap film makes the smallest possible
surface area for the volume it contains. If the bubble is floating in the
air and make no contacts with other objects, it will form a sphere, because
a sphere is the shape that has the smallest surface area compared to its
volume. (Wind or vibration may distort the sphere). Bubbles will take on a
different shape (hemisphere, etc.) when they are on a flat surface.
Soap Bubbles. What is so fascinating about bubbles? The
precise spherical shape, the incredibly fragile nature of the
microscopically thin soap film, the beautiful colors that swirl and shimmer,

a sphere at all? Why not a cube, tetrahedron, or other geometrical figure?
