Gibbs film elasticity
Pertains to a film element of a soap film changing in area at constant mass and is the differential change of its surface tension with relative change in area A,
E = A ( ∂ σ ∂ A ) T , p , n i
where T is the thermodynamic temperature, p is the pressure, and n i is the amount of substance of the species i.
