tensione di adesione/bagnabilità
Explanation:
Wetting Tension: a measurement of force/length defined as:

t = Fw / P = g LV cos q

This value, wetting force normalized for length, also represents the product of the cosine of the contact angle and the surface tension. It allows for a characterization of the strength of the wetting interaction without separate measurement of surface tension. Most helpful in situations, such as multicomponent systems, where surface tension at interface may not equal equilibrium surface tension. Also referred to as Adhesion Tension or Work of Wetting.
