Which property of water causes water drops to bead on a freshly waxed car?


Answer from: jdkrisdaimcc11

Cohesive forces are greater than adhesive forces  

Step-by-step explanation:

The attractive forces between water molecules and the wax on a freshly-waxed car (adhesive forces) are quite weak.

However, there are strong attractive forces (cohesive forces) between water molecules.

The water molecules are only weakly attracted to the wax, so the cohesive forces pull the water molecules together to form beads .

Answer from: kinglightskin2k
What it actually is, is that wax is hypotonic and moves away from the water so the water can’t spread out
