Paper Abstract

In the previous research, an optical force equation for microbubbles is derived to compute the force on a microbubble that is steered in a liquid using an optical field. To compute the total number of particles in the spherical microbubble, a tabular method is used. Although the tabular method is not complex and provides the approximate value, it is necessary to derive an equation for the precise value in computing the number of particles. This research paper has derived an equation for computing the total number of particles in the spherical microbubble. The equation provides the precise and reliable results in the computation of the total number of particles. By computing the number of particles using the equation instead of the tabular method, the reliability and precision of the optical force equation for the microbubble are increased.
