Origins of the name[edit]

Does anyone know why it's called the Bond number? 22:31, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Other Bond numbers[edit]

There is, in the study of electrohydrodynamics, another type of Bond number, sometimes referred to as an electric Bond number. Interestingly, this is not a measure of the relative importance of a body force to capillary force, but rather of the relative importance of the Maxwell stress (a surface stress) to the capillary pressure.
